The brand which started as Oppo’s child company can finally be said to be standing on its own feet. Realme after branching out from Oppo recently launched the Realme 2 Pro, the successor to its previous phone, the Realme 2.

However, we noticed that the Realme 2 is much more of a looker from the rear side since the phone sports the diamond cut back, which the Realme 2 Pro misses out on. The Realme 2 Pro differs a bit in this regard and sports a smooth back panel with hue colours.
