Realme X2 Pro Officially Announced: Snapdragon 855+, Quad Camera And More


Realme has just announced the Realme X2 Pro smartphone during an event held in Madrid. The device is the new top of the range handset from the Chinese company. 

The device has a 6.5 inch full HD + (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) AMOLED 90Hz display with a brightness that can go up to 1,000 nits. 

Under the hood, it features a Qualcomm 855+ chipset that comes accompanied by a vapor chamber to aid cooling. HyperBoost 2.0 will bring about more stable frame rates while Touch Boost 2.0 has increased touch responsiveness by 35%. 

It has 64/128/256 GB UFS 3.0 internal memory options and 6/8/12 GB RAM variants. The battery is a 4,000mAh with Super VOOC at 50W that can charge the phone to 80% in just 30 minutes. 

But, of course, the stars of the show are the cameras: on the front, we’ll find a 16MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture nicely housed in what is now regarded as a classic teardrop notch. The camera features a Quad Bayer filter and has a Nightscape mode, just like the ones on the back. 

On the back, we can find a quad camera array consisting of a main 64MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and a 13MP telephoto lens with an f/2.5 aperture, 2.5, 5x Hybrid Optical Zoom and 20X digital zoom. Last but not least, there’s also a 2Mp depth camera with an f/2.5 aperture. 

Other features include dual SIM, dual 4G LTE, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, GPS / GLONASS / Beidou, NFC, USB Type-C and an audio jack. 

It runs Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6.1 out of the box. 

It comes in four color options: Ocean Blue, Midnight Silver and two Master Editions that come in Red and Grey. 

The device will go on sale in Chine as of October 18th and it will be priced at CNY2,699 (around $380 after conversion) for the 6GB/64GB variant, while the 8GB/128GB model will cost CNY2,899 (around $410). The 12GB RAM and 256GB storage will be pricier than its other siblings of course, at CNY3,299 (around $465).
