The newly launched Realme X2 Pro brings together everything the public loves: great specs and compelling prices.
This flagship-worthy smartphone has a starting price of ¥2,699 (around P19,693 or $380) for the 6GB/64GB variant. It’s also available in 8GB/128GB for ¥2,899 (P21,152 or $410) and 12GB/256GB for ¥3,299 (P24,071 or $465).
Preorders in China will start today, October 15, with shipping kicking off on October 18. For a limited time, Realme is offering its Chinese customers a ¥100 (P729 or $15) discount on all models.
We saw a hands-on video of the Realme X2 Pro yesterday, but this time we’re given a better look at the handset and its specs.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered X2 Pro boasts a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080p+ resolution, HDR10+ support, and full coverage of DCI-P3. It joins the likes of the OPPO Reno Ace and the OnePlus 7T Pro with its 90Hz refresh rate and somewhat similar design.
Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protects both the front and back of the device. The front is mostly flat, except for the beveled edges. Meanwhile, the rear is contoured to follow the shape of the phone. Its frame is made with metal, and it comes in four color options: Ocean Blue, Midnight Silver, and red and gray for the Master Editions.
The Realme X2 Pro Master Edition has the same price as the most expensive variant, but it doesn’t get the limited-time discount. It’s designed by Naoto Fukasawa, who took inspiration from building textures for it.
Like the Reno Ace and 7T Pro, the Realme X2 Pro has its quad-camera setup at the top center of the unit’s back. The module houses a 64-megapixel primary lens, which uses the large Samsung GW1 with an f/1.8 aperture. The sensor is designed for 4-in-1 pixel binning and a 16-megapixel output, but you can still use the full resolution if you want. The camera also gets the improved Nightscape 2.0 mode for better low-light and Night mode shots.
There is also a 13-megapixel telephoto lens with a 20x hybrid zoom. While this lens and the primary camera don’t have optical image stabilization or OIS, there is electronic video stabilization for video recording, which is available in 4K.
This handset also gets a 115-degree ultra-wide-angle camera with an 8-megapixel sensor and PDAF with a dedicated Macro mode that has a minimum focus distance of just 1 inch. It’s capable of shooting in slow motion at 720p at 960fps.
The last sensor on the back of the Realme X2 Pro is a 2-megapixel portrait camera or depth sensor that helps the primary lens when it comes to improving contrast and texture.
In front, the Realme X2 Pro gets a 16-megapixel selfie camera with Nightscape 2.0 mode and EIS for video.
The smartphone is equipped with up to UFS 3.0 storage (but without expandable storage support), a quicker in-display fingerprint reader that can unlock the phone in 0.23 seconds (the Realme X2 needs 0.36s), and a 4,000mAh battery that supports 50-watt SuperVOOC Flash Charge. It promises to get you up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
The Realme X2 Pro also supports USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm QuickCharge standards, making it easier to look for power banks or additional chargers for this device. If need be, even someone’s MacBook charger can help you quickly top up this phone.
It runs on Android 9.0 Pie skinned with ColorOS 6 and features dual speakers with Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio support.
At the moment, it’s still unclear if Realme plans to bring the Realme X2 Pro here. For now, we in the Philippines have the Realme XT to look forward to arriving on our shores.
