Realme, an India-based smartphone manufacturer, has just announced a new smartphone, the Realme 2 Pro. This handset has just been announced in New Delhi, India, and Realme actually refers to it as its flagship offering, even though it’s technically a mid-range smartphone. The Realme 2 Pro resembles most of today’s smartphones, as it utilizes metal + glass build, not to mention that it sports a display notch as well.
The Realme 2 Pro’s notch is not huge at all, it’s somewhat similar to what the OPPO R17 has to offer, and the notch that will be available on the OnePlus 6T, the so-called 'waterdrop' notch. A fingerprint scanner lies on the back of this smartphone, along with the ‘Realme’ branding, and a dual camera setup which sports horizontal orientation. The phone’s display sports rounded corners, while it does come with a thin ‘chin’ below the display, though this phone has extremely thin bezels overall. A power / lock key is located on the right-hand side of the device, while you will find its volume up and down buttons on the left. A Type-C USB port is located on the bottom of the device, along with the device’s loudspeaker.
The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 660 64-bit octa-core processor, while it comes in three variants, actually. The phone’s most affordable model comes with 4GB of (LPDDR4X) RAM and 64GB of storage, while the middle-of-the-road variant offers 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The most expensive Realme 2 Pro unit offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device features a 6.3-inch Dewdrop Full Screen display, as the company refers to it, and the device has a 90.8-percent screen-to-body ratio. A 3,500mAh battery is also included in the package, while there are two SIM card slots available inside the Realme 2 Pro. The device supports dual 4G, and dual VoLTE, while you will find two 16-megapixel cameras on the back of the phone. The primary camera is equipped with Sony’s IMX398 sensor, f/1.7 aperture, and a 6P lens.
A 16-megapixel camera can be found on the front side of the phone as well, and in its case, we’re looking at f/2.0 aperture lens. The device comes with ‘Portrait Mode’, while AR stickers are also available. Android 8.1 Oreo comes pre-installed on the Realme 2 Pro, while ColorOS 5.2 skin is included on top of it. All three devices will go on sale in Black Sea, Blue Ocean, and Ice Lake color variants, while the three models we’ve mentioned are priced at Rs. 13,990 ($193), Rs. 15,990 ($220), and Rs. 17,990 ($248), respectively. The first sale for all three models will take place on October 11 at noon, India time.
