The launch of the Realme 2 paved the way for something greater to come. The rumour of a possible Realme 2 Pro smartphone in September surfaced online. An advertisement even popped up, showcasing the smartphone with a notched display. However, this was all based on hearsay. The good news is that courtesy of a YouTuber with the channel name of Technical Guruji, we now have official news of the Realme 2 Pro from none other than the CEO of the company, Madhav Sheth.
Coming to the hardware of the device, the CEO confirms that the Realme 2 Pro smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon 660. This is definitely quite a setup up in terms of power and performance over the Snapdragon 450 SoC which drives the Realme 2. While the Snapdragon 660 SoC isn’t the fastest, it isn’t a slouch at all. The octa-core CPU runs at a frequency of 2.2GHz. Having the 660 SoC allows for up to a Full HD+ display, 4K video recording, Bluetooth 6, and a 16MP dual camera. From the view of the phone itself, it’s clear that it has a dual-rear camera and a fingerprint scanner at the back.
While the CEO of the company doesn’t disclose all the specifications of the Realme 2 Pro, what we do know is that we’re surely in for quite a surprise! Mr Sheth does speak about the importance of battery life, indicating that the Realme 2 Pro could possibly have a large capacity battery. Regarding pricing, the device is expected to sell for anything between Rs 10,000-20,000. The Realme 2 Pro will launch on the 27th of September, so stay tuned for more!
