Earlier this year, OPPO introduced a new sub-brand called Realme by launching the Realme 1 smartphone. Last month, the company became an independent company by cutting its ties with OPPO. Today, Realme has launched its second-gen smartphone called Realme 2 in India. The Realme 1 came with few compromises to sell at an attractive price. Now, the Realme 2 ticks all the boxes and the company still managed to sell at the stupendous price tag of just Rs 8,990.
Talking about the design, the new Realme 2 also sports fiberglass body with 2nd-gen diamond cut finish. It will be available in Diamond Red, Diamond Blue, and Diamond Black color options. On the front is a 6.2-inch Super-view IPS display with 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch on the top. It offers HD+ (1520 x 720 pixels) resolution and 88.8% screen-to-body ratio. There is also a Corning Gorilla Glass protection on the top. Compared to its predecessor, the Realme 2 comes with a less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform clocked at 1.4GHz.
