Gone are the days you had to shell out a hefty amount to grab a device with a flagship processor. OnePlus brought a change to this scenario with its first device OnePlus One. When the company gained reputation as the flagship killer, Xiaomi released its offerings.
Released on August 2018, Pocophone F1 raised serious threat to the monopoly of OnePlus in the mid-range segment. Asus also released ZenFone 5Z with the same purpose in mind. In May this year, Redmi K20 Pro came into existence for targetting the buyers around the sub 20K price bracket.
Realme X2 Pro Goes Live with Snapdragon 855+ and Quad Rear Cameras
By the time online shopping becomes a popular affair, Oppo has changed their game. In order to fight Redmi, they have launched Realme. The company spinoff concentrated on releasing devices with the best specs to price ratio. And, they almost succeeded in their mission. Redmi now has no monopoly in the budget segment.
They have decided to take over the mid-range division as well. That’s why the brand just launched Realme X2 Pro with a flagship processor. Once it becomes globally available, it will directly compete with OnePlus 7T and Redmi K20 Pro.
As for the specifications, X2 Pro features a 6.5-inch full HD+ display with 20:9 aspect ratio. The enticing spec is its refresh rate. At 90 Hz, it ensures a fluid user experience with smooth graphic rendering. Moreover, the panel also supports DC Dimming 2.0 technology with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Under the hood, the phone borrows processing power from Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset coupled with up to 12 GB RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.0 onboard storage. Of course, there are multiple RAM/storage variants available for you to choose from.
