Realme, one of the market disruptors in the budget, mid-range, and even premium segment of India, has launched another smartphone in Indian markets. This time, Realme is focusing more on the mid-range market after launching its Realme X2 Pro, and the latest smartphone from them is the Realme X2. From the name itself, you can understand that this smartphone is a budget-friendly version of the Realme X2 Pro. After launching Realme X2 in China and then in Europe, the smartphone makes its way to India with a bang. As far as the Realme X2’s pricing is concerned, the company has launched it starting at Rs. 16,999 for the 4GB RAM variant while you can get the 6/64GB variant for Rs. 18,999 and the 8/128GB option for Rs. 19,999. Now, let’s have a first look at the various aspects of Realme X2 to see what the smartphone has to offer.
Realme X2 Design
We know that design is very subjective, and everyone has their own opinion in the design of any smartphone, product, or in general. While you might like the design of a phone, others may not have the same opinion. Regardless, it is worth noting that Realme X2 is a successor to the Realme XT and it has many design elements borrowed from its predecessor as well. You get a waterdrop notch on the display and minimal edges on sides with a relatively large chin. On the back, there are four cameras stacked on top of each other quite aesthetically.
Realme X2 Display
Realme X2 has the same 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display, as seen on the Realme Xt, so there is no difference in that aspect. There is Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front, along with a 91.9% screen-to-body ratio. An in-display fingerprint sensor is also included on the front for unlocking the phone. The viewing angles of Realme X2’s display are high, and it gets plenty bright in direct sunlight too.
Realme X2 Specifications
Realme X2 brings an upgrade from the Realme XT in the hardware department when it comes to processing power. While the Realme XT was launched with Snapdragon 710 processor, the Realme X2 comes with a Snapdragon 730G processor. Apart from that, you have 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB RAM. Still, we feel that the 6GB RAM variant will be enough for gaming and heavy multitasking usage, while a 4GB variant may fall short in some heavy gaming and multitasking scenarios. You might not notice any difference between the performance of 6GB and 8GB RAM modification unless and until you have cumbersome graphics-intensive tasks such as gaming.
Realme X2 Software
Realme’s software has become the talking point in recent times because of the company’s unveiling of the Realme OS based on Color OS 7. As per Realme, the latest version of Color OS 7 will bring you a “close to stock” experience. At the moment, Realme X2 runs on Color OS 6.1, and the Color OS 7 update should arrive soon. There is an option for app drawer on the current version of Color OS, and bloatware apps are still present on the device.
Realme X2 Camera
One of the main aspects of Realme X2, just like any other phone, is its Camera. The smartphone comes with a quad-camera setup, which has a 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide Camera, 2MP depth sensor, and then a 2MP macro sensor, which also allows you to focus up to 4cm. The main upgrade in Realme X2’s Camera is on the front, which now has a 32MP selfie camera. It is double the megapixel count we had on the Realme XT, which was just a 16MP front shooter. If you are a selfie person, Realme X2 might be the best option right now as it does offer crisp image quality with accurate colors and details.
Realme X2 battery
Realme has bundled a 4000 mAh battery on the Realme X2, which does come with 30W VOOC 4.0 flash charging support. As for charging speeds, Realme claims that its smartphone can go from 0% to 67% in under 30 minutes with its latest charging solution. It is very similar to OnePlus’ Dash Charge, which also provides 30W fast charging and also charges from 0% to ~70% in less than 30 minutes. Now, this fact is not entirely surprising given the fact that OnePlus, Realme, Oppo, and Vivo operate under the same parent brand, BBK Electronics.
As we have mentioned earlier, Realme X2 is a successor to the Realme XT and a budget-friendly version of Realme X2 Pro, which comes with a 90Hz display. You get upgraded front Camera and faster charging on Realme X2 compared to Realme XT, while everything else remains the same. If these features matter to you, then the Realme X2 is worth buying as the pricing is also great, plus you will get bank discounts at the moment.
