Realme has the biggest momentum in the Indian budget segment, and the brand is not sitting on his laurels. The manufacturer launched ten phones this year alone, and with each device, it has managed to outperform other players in the segment ̵
As we approach the end of 2019, Realme may bring one of the following devices to the market's most exciting handsets of the year. The Realme X2 Pro has so many features that I do not know where to start. Let's start with the highlights: The X2 Pro has a 90 Hz AMOLED display with a water droplet cutout. It is powered by the Snapdragon 855+ chipset, you get 12GB of RAM / 256GB of memory and there is a 4000mAh battery under the hood. Up to this point, it is comparable to other flagship ships on the market today.
However, the X2 Pro has some great features: Charged with 50W SuperVOOC – first for a 64MP main camera sold in India and 20x hybrid zoom lens. It is also Realme's first phone with stereo speakers. Combine all this and the fact that the phone comes on the market at just £ 29,999 ($ 417) and you understand why the X2 Pro is turning this segment upside down.
The X2 Pro is a Central Phone for Realme For the first time, the brand makes its debut outside Asia. The phone is available in the UK, Spain, France, Belgium and many other European markets, with Realme Xiaomi leading the way. Let's take a look at the phone itself.
The Realme X2 Pro has a lot in common in terms of design with the latest handsets from Realme. The phone is available in two color options – Lunar White and Neptune Blue – and the colors are identical to those of the Realme XT. The X2 Pro also has a glass back, with front and back glass protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
The design on the back is dominated by the quad-camera arrangement, while the case itself is identical to that of the Realme XT, it is now centered. In addition to the camera body is now also a Realme logo. Apart from the logo and a few markings on the underside, the design of the X2 Pro is clear and overall the phone looks first-class.
The on / off switch is on the right, the volume rocker is on the left. and you get a 3.5mm jack at the bottom. From the hardware point of view, nothing is missing, and that's a good idea considering how much the X2 Pro costs.
The X2 Pro combines a beautiful design with a 90 Hz AMOLED panel and stereo sound.
X2 Pro is the first real stereo phone with stereo sound: The primary speaker is at the bottom, and above the screen is a wide grid containing the secondary speaker. Stereo sound is a welcome addition and makes watching and watching videos on the X2 Pro even more enjoyable.
One of the highlights of the X2 Pro is the 90 Hz AMOLED screen. It's just as fluid and fluid as the OnePlus 7T's display, and since Realme is owned by the BBK, it's likely to use the same panel as well. Also on the screen is the E3 luminescent material, which aims to increase brightness up to 1000nits and reduce blue light emission.
Realme uses Qualcomm's flagship chipset for the first time, and that makes a big difference.
X2 Pro is a pleasure due to the 90 Hz refresh rate and the panel quality itself is one of the best you will find in this category. In fact, the X2 Pro is the cheapest phone with a 90 Hz panel, and that alone makes it a very tempting option. The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the screen, which is one of the fastest I have ever used, and there is also a very well-functioning face unlocking solution.
While Realme launched many phones in 2019, this is the first time we've seen the company include Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 8xx chipset. The phone is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 855+ silicone and in combination with the 90-Hz display is a true performance bull. You will not notice any slowdown or delay in daily use, and this is the most enjoyable experience I've had with ColorOS.

Earlier Realme phones were not exactly slow, but they had their limitations – especially in terms of games. That's no problem on the X2 Pro, and the phone blew everything I threw on it. Realme offers 8 GB RAM and 128 GB UFS 3.0 memory in India as standard as well as a second version with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.0 memory.
I test the latter variant, and if you are looking for it For a future-proof device, the 12 GB option is more suitable. Realme also has a 6 GB / 64 GB base version on world markets, but this model is not available in India.
Another outstanding feature of the X2 Pro is the fast charging. The phone comes with the OPPO 50W SuperVOOC wired charger and comes with a 50W charger. This means that in just 30 minutes you can charge a charge of 80% – and that while you play. When idle, the phone changes from zero to 100% in just 35 minutes. Oh, and it also works with existing USB PD solutions so you can use your older fast charging technology.
The 4000mAh battery itself can be used for more than a day when fully charged and with additional charging at 50W, making the X2 Pro a powerhouse. As the phone debuts in the global markets, you get NFC for Google Pay. In addition, you get a Wi-Fi ac 4×4 MIMO antenna, liquid cooling, Bluetooth 5.0 and a dedicated game mode.
Now on the Cameras: The X2 Pro has four cameras on the back with a Samsung GW1 primary module with a 64 MP sensor connected to a 13MP 2x zoom lens, an 8MP wide angle shooter and a 2MP portrait lens. Realme tries to emulate Google's color balance and image quality, and does a pretty good job overall. The X2 Pro makes stunning photos in daylight and good work in low light conditions.
A highlight of the X2 Pro is the 20x hybrid zoom, which only offers the 13 megapixel lens 2 times the zoom, but Realme uses digital zoom to achieve passable 20x magnification.
Realme X2 Pro with 1x, 2x, and 20x magnification  The only downside of the X2 Pro is the software: It runs ColorOS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie, Realme has made many significant additions to ColorOS, but the fact that Android 10 is not running by default on the phone is definitely one Mistake I've encountered no issues with ColorOS in everyday use, but it will be a long time before Android 10 is available for the device.
Phones like the X2 Pro are offered once a year. Last year it was the POCO F1 that brought the conversation on the value. This time Realme sits in the driver's seat. The X2 Pro features the latest in internal hardware, a beautiful design and a 90 Hz screen, a 64 megapixel rear camera and a 50W wired charger.
On the way to 2020 The Realme X2 Pro beat the value flagship. The phone will be available for sale in India on November 26, and the 8GB / 128GB base option is available for £ 29,999 ($ 417).
The Realme X2 Pro is also available in several global markets for the 6GB / 64GB model to spend € 399 ($ 440). That's not exactly the same bargain as in India, but considering the hardware offered, it's still pretty decent business.
In the coming weeks I will have much more to tell about the X2 Pro, but in the meantime, what do you think about the phone? Let me know in the comments below.
