Rumours for Realme’s first flagship have abounded for weeks, and now the Oppo value brand has teased its epic specs while other details have leaked with the launch right around the corner.
All of us engrossed in the value-flagship world have been excited to see what Oppo‘s value-oriented Realme brand could do in said value-flagship territory since the brand’s young inception a mere 16 months ago, with anticipation only growing since their mature target competitor Redmi‘s lauded release of their value-flagship Redmi K20 and K20 Pro, aka Mi 9T and 9T Pro internationally.
Realme first confirmed their imminent value-flagship’s existence with teasers rolling out two weeks ago of their Realme X2 Pro detailing the phone’s expected Snapdragon 855+ and Samsung 64MP primary, ultrawide, zoom, and macro camera sensors, but also the tantalising 90hz 1080p+ display and 65W uberfast charging.
No more official details have been forthcoming from Realme since those spec teasers other than the X2 Pro’s official October 15th release date, but some further, well-kept details have now leaked, starting with this photo from an ad which reveals the phone to look a fair sight better than its standard Realme X2 brethren with its central cameras:
Some other specs of the Realme X2 Pro were also leaked, so here’s a rundown of everything we know so far:
- It will use Qualcomm‘s slightly-upgraded Snapdragon 855+ and its Adreno 640 GPU
- It will offer a 90hz 6.5inch FHD+ notched SAMOLED display, probably the same panel as the OnePlus 7T, with an in-display fingerprint reader
- It will have a camera array of the primary 64MP (pixel-binned) Samsung ISOCELL sensor, 8MP ultrawide sensor, 13MP ‘3x’ zoom sensor, 2MP ‘macro’ sensor, and 16MP selfie sensor, with a 20MP digital zoom on the rear cameras.
- It will have dual-stereo speakers, though presumably not both front-facing as that was not specified.
- It will utilise Oppo’s proprietary uberfast 50W VOOC 2.0 uberfast charging for the ~3950mAh battery, which should fully charge in <45 mins.
- The base variant will offer 6GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM, lacking a microSD card slot unfortunately.
No pricing has been announced nor leaked, though I would hazard a guess at around $400-500US or RS25000; slightly cheaper than the OnePlus 7T though with some added features, given the standard Realme X2, which shares most specs outside of the display and processor, starts at $250US or RS15000.
We won’t need to wait long to get all the final details and pricing, though, as the phone launches in only a week on October 15th – so stay tuned!
