It’s been a busy year for realme what with the launch of the realme 3, 3 Pro early this year, as well as realme 5 and 5 Pro just recently.
One has to wonder why the OPPO sub-brand is pushing out a new device so soon after another, within the same series. It’s parent company, OPPO are doing it with the Reno 2, while Vivo have done it with the V17 Pro.
But perhaps in an effort to counter that is the realme X2 Pro – the flagship (yes, realme is launching a flagship) has been confirmed to sport a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, along with a 90Hz 6.5-inch AMOLED display that supports HDR10+. This is ROG Phone-level stuff.
According to GSM Arena, the phone will also boast a vapor cooling chamber along with HyperBoost 2.0 for increased performance. The phone will come with at least 6GB RAM with 64GB UFS 2.1 storage or up to 12GB RAM with 256GB UFS 3.0 storage. Meaning the lower spec variant is your flagship, while the high spec variant is your all-guns-blazing gaming smartphone.
Elsewhere, the phone is equipped with a 64MP lens which will be part of a quad camera setup along side an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 13MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP depth sensor – not bad realme, not bad at all.
Oh and it gets better – the phone is powered by a 4,000mAh battery with support of up to 50W SuperVOOC fast charging. With these sort of specs, the realme X2 Pro will give the OnePlus It all looks like it’s going to be a direct competitor to the OnePlus 7T Pro a run for its money.
The phone will be priced at CNY2,699 (RM1,599) for the 6GB + 64GB variant, CNY2,899 (RM1,717) for the 8GB + 128GB variant, and CNY3,299 for the 12GB + 256GB (RM1,954) model. If it arrives in Malaysia, we can expect memory configurations to change along with a heftier price, but being realme, the phones would still be value for money.
