Oppo’s sub-brand Realme just introduced its third smartphone and it’s by far it’s most exciting yet. Realme 2 Pro comes with a 6.3 Full HD+ screen and a waterdrop notch (that Realme calls Dewdrop), capable Snapdragon 660 chipset and memory options up to 8/128 GB.
The Realme 2 Pro has a 16 MP + 2 MP rear camera setup, with the primary sensor being positioned behind a fast f/1.7 lens. The selfie shooter, sitting in the notch has 16 MP resolution and an f/2.0 lens. The back is completed by the oval fingerprint scanner and the Realme logo, but it is now missing the diamond pattern we saw in the Realme 1 and the Realme 2.
The Snapdragon 660 chipset is coupled with three RAM + storage options – 4/64 GB, 6/64 GB, and 8/128 GB.
The Realme 2 Pro, similarly to the regular Realme 2, runs ColorOS 5.2, based on Android 8.1 Oreo. It brings some features like Easy Screenshot, Clone Phone, and Smart Play that allows local videos to keep playing in the background. The phone has 3,500 mAh battery capacity, but lacks support for fast charging.
Realme 2 Pro arrives in three colors – Black, Deep Blue, and Light Blue. The prices for India will be INR13,990 ($192/165) for the 4/64 GB version, INR15,990 ($220/188) for the 6/64 GB variant and the 8/128 GB option will cost INR17,990 ($250/212). The phone will launch on October 11 at Midnight, exclusively on Flipkart.
More excitingly, this will be the first Realme handset to be available outside of India. More details on its global rollout will be announced in October.
