Realme Aiming to Stir the Market by Launching Realme 2 Pro With 8GB of RAM Under Rs 20,000

Realme, which is gearing up for the launch of Realme 2 Pro smartphone on September 27 has started teasing the device’s features on its social media handles. Also, e-commerce portal Flipkart has created a landing page revealing the key specifications of the handset. Madhav Sheth, the CEO of Realme has recently confirmed that Realme 2 Pro would be priced between Rs 10,000 and Rs 20,000. Going by his words, the Realme 2 Pro’s 8GB RAM variant will also be retailing under Rs 20,000, which would stir the market. The Realme 2 Pro is confirmed to feature the Snapdragon 660 chipset and a Geekbench even revealed the presence of 8GB RAM. Notably, this variant will have 128GB of internal storage.


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.

Realme 2 vs Realme 2 Pro: All Differences You Need to Know

The Realme 2 was a budget smartphone while the Realme 2 Pro will be a mid-range handset. The Realme 2 was powered by the Snapdragon 450 chipset, but the Realme 2 Pro will have the Snapdragon 660 SoC underneath. Also, the Realme 2 arrived in 3GB/4GB RAM variants, while the 2 Pro will be available in 4GB/6GB/8GB RAM options. Both the phones are expected to carry similar cameras, but the upcoming handset might have a better selfie shooter.

It will be interesting to see how Realme prices the Realme 2 Pro. Even if the 8GB RAM variant retails for Rs 19,990, it will prove out to be a tough time for devices such as Xiaomi Mi A2 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Excellent. Xiaomi has got tough competition now. I just feel Colors OS is ugly. MIUI looks better to me but stock Android is the best. Personal choice though.

There’s always the option to unlock the bootloader and install a custom rom. Since this device will be cheap, more devs will get roms for this phone.

Lol….Korea companies are big than Chinese. They don’t vanish. If one can give at that price others can’t?? It’s their business model that decides their price. Oppo/Vivo sd660 phones cost how much??

This doesn’t make sense. RAM beyond 4GB doesn’t really get used effectively. It is better for phone makers to select a higher speed RAM and especially faster flash storage in the phone. And optimise their OEM code for the hardware. Instead phone companies are giving us 8GB phones, because it is easier to do and easier to market as well. That number shows up on the specification and we all assume an 8GB phone is better than a 4GB phone. For most cheap 8GB phones, it isn’t. In fact 8GB phones also have a slightly higher power consumption

Lol…phone consume power when u use it. 8 or 1
4 or 16 don’t make difference. Android being open source u can’t expect optimization to particular hardware when many sold in the market. With SD660 6gb ram is best buy. 8gb to market it. Always more ram helps multi tasking. Apps don’t force close to fit new.

Actually, Android has lot of components that are specific to the logic board and components used, and companies like Motorola and Nokia take care to optimise their implementation. This is the reason you find them smoother with lower power chips.

Anyway, you have agreed to my main point that 8GB is just marketing.

Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 Plus has poor optimizes software in my opinion. You can try out if you want. Whatever you said is right with Moto G6.
