Realme 2 Pro: Expected Specifications and Features
Realme 2 Pro is one of the much-awaited smartphones to launch in recent times. The company has created a lot of hype for the smartphone because some users were disappointed with the Realme 2 as it came with sort of downgraded hardware compared to the Realme 1. The Realme 2 Pro will live up to the hype as it's already confirmed to pack capable hardware at a stellar price point.
The Realme 2 Pro will have a Dewdrop Full Screen display with a tiny notch on top. If you've seen the Oppo F9 Pro and Vivo V11 Pro, then assume that you've seen the Realme 2 Pro as well. While Oppo is calling the notch on Oppo F9 Pro as waterdrop notch, Realme is terming it as Dewdrop notch. Except for the naming, there's nothing different.
Coming to the internal hardware, the Realme 2 Pro will have the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset, clubbed with 4GB/6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The premium variant will include 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There could be a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The Realme 1 was launched in a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage option under Rs 15,000, which was the first time a manufacturer has did it. Now, the company is on the verge of launching an 8GB RAM smartphone under Rs 20,000.
Other known features include dual rear cameras, glass back, Android 8.1 Oreo-based Color OS and a beefy battery like the Realme 2.
