OPPO sub-brand Realme officially launched their first flagship device Realme X2 Pro on October 15. With the new handset Realme is going up against other affordable flagships like the Redmi K20 Pro and OnePlus 7T.
The device sports a 64 MP quad rear camera setup and comes with a full-HD+ Super AMOLED Fluid display with 90Hz refresh rate. Unlike the Realme X and Redmi K20 Pro that both come with a pop-up selfie camera module, the Realme X2 Pro features a V-shaped notch housing a 16MP lens. The X2 Pro can capture videos at 4K resolution with a max frame rate of 60fps. Additionally, it can capture slow-motion videos at up to 960fps.
The X2 Pro is powered by the high-end Snapdragon 855+ chipset with the Adreno 640 GPU. The handset is available in 6GB, 8GB and 12GB RAM options with up to 256GB of internal storage. Notably, the 128GB and 256GB variants get UFS 3.0 storage standard, which should bring a slight boost to the overall speed of the device. The in-built vapor chamber keeps things from getting too heated during intensive gaming . Realme is also using a Tactile linear vibration motor for improved haptic feedback.
As for battery, the X2 Pro comes equipped with 4000mAh, that allegedly only takes 35min to charge using its 50W SuperVOOC charging technology. Even while you’re using the phone for gaming, the phone’s battery can be charged 80% in 30 minutes with OPPO’s proprietary charging technology. Additionally, the phone supports 18W charging with any Qualcomm Quick Charge or USB-PD supported charging brick.
The Realme X2 Pro price in China is set at 2,699 yuan (~$380) for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage configuration, while the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option is priced at 2,899 yuan (~$410) and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant carries a price tag of 3,299 yuan (~$465). The handset comes in White and Blue color options with a gradient finish on top.
The Chinese launch was closely followed by the European presentation in Madrid. The handset is also confirmed to launch in India in December.
