After the Realme 2 launch last month, the newly-formed brand has launched the Realme 2 Pro smartphone in India. The new Realme 2 Pro model sees an upgrade in RAM, processor, camera, and other departments. With an aggressive Realme 2 Pro price in India, the company is looking to entice the buyers with waterdrop-shaped display notch (which the company is calling Dewdrop), up to 8GB of RAM, and Snapdragon 660 SoC. The smartphone sports a polycarbonate resin dewdrop back cover delivering a sense of transparency, rear fingerprint sensor, and has a horizontally stacked dual camera setup as well.
Realme 2 Pro: Specifications, Features
The Realme 2 Pro features an impressive 6.3-inch sized IPS LCD Dewdrop Full-Screen display with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Thanks to the Dewdrop notch at the top of the display, Realme 2 Pro has an even higher screen-to-body ratio than the Realme 2. At 90.8 percent, the screen-to-body ratio of the Realme 2 Pro is, in fact, the highest in its class. The display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, although, the company has not specified the exact version. Another key highlight of the Realme 2 Pro is the processor inside. While some Realme fans were unhappy with the company’s decision to go with the Snapdragon 450 chipset for the Realme 2, they will be glad to learn that the Realme 2 Pro runs on a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE processor under the hood.
So far, only two other smartphones powered by the same chipset have been launched below the Rs. 20,000 price segment in India – Xiaomi Mi A2 and Vivo V9 Pro. The 14nm octa-core processor comes clocked at up to 2.2 GHz with an Adreno 512 GPU. In the memory department, Realme 2 Pro impresses with up to a whopping 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It will also be available in 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variants. The 128GB variant uses UFS 2.1 flash storage, allowing for faster system performance.
Moving on to optics, the Realme 2 Pro features a dual-camera setup at the rear with a 16MP Sony IMX398 primary sensor. The primary sensor comes with Dual Pixel technology for fast focus speeds, EIS for stable video recording, and a 6P f/1.7 aperture lens. For depth-sensing, the smartphone uses a 2MP resolution secondary sensor. Some of the other key camera features include AI scene recognition and an AI Portrait Mode. For selfies, the smartphone has a 16MP front camera with AI Beautify feature that works even when you capture group selfies. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, and 4G VoLTE. Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh capacity battery. In terms of software, the smartphone runs ColorOS 5.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
