Realme X2: Specifications Detailed
Realme has been teasing the specifications of the Realme X2 for a while now, but the company has revealed just three features of the handset. The Realme X2 differs from the Realme XT in just three aspects; The X2 has Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset as compared to the Snapdragon 712 SoC we get on the Realme XT. The Realme X2 also has a 32MP front-facing camera and also features 30W Super VOOC fast charging support. The Realme XT has a 16MP front-facing camera and offers 20W Super VOOC fast charging technology to the users.
Other specifications of the Realme X2 include 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display along with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The handset may run Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6.2 out of the box and it will be backed by a 4000mAh battery. As for the cameras, the Realme X2 will rock 64MP quad-camera setup on the back, similar to the Realme XT.
Compared to the Xiaomi Redmi K20, the Realme X2 has a slight advantage in some aspects- fast processor and charging speeds. The Redmi K20 has the Sony IMX582 sensor and it's not capable of recording 4K videos at 60fps, but we're expecting the Realme X2 to offer this feature thanks to the 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 sensor.
Do make a note that these are not the official prices of the Realme X2, but our expected price of the smartphone was also Rs 19,999. The launch event is less than 24 hours from now.
