Realme X2 Pro ! True Flagship Killer or Missed Opportunity?

realme x2 pro

Before Xiaomi could capture the Flagship Killer Market again with Poco F2, Realme is already here with their all-new Realme X2 Pro which checks most of the boxes than any other Flagship Killer till date.

But Still, we feel that the Realme missed the opportunity and has ruined a perfect phone! Before we talk further about that, Let’s have a look at the specifications first.


The all-new Realme X2 Pro comes with Snapdragon 855 Plus coupled with 8GB of Ram and 128GB of Internal Storage for the base variant whereas the top-end variant goes all the way up to 12GB of Ram and 256GB of Internal Storage.

The Device will be running on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with ColorOS 6.1 on top.

Adreno 640 is the GPU here just like every other smartphone featuring Snapdragon 855 Plus.

And all of this is powered by a 4000-mAh Battery which is more of an industry-standard these days.

What’s not so Industry standard is the charging technology Realme X2 Pro comes with.

It comes with the support for SuperVOOC Flash Charge. What’s that? The device is capable to charge itself completely from 0% to 100% in just 35-Minutes.

Although it is necessary to use the provided 50W Charger.

Which is just insane. Moreover, even if you don’t have the 50W charger with yourself, most fast chargers available out there in the market are supported too but the charging time will differ depending on the specifications of charger you are using.

Snapdragon 855 Plus

Qualcomm’s latest flagship offering Snapdragon 855 Plus is a 64-Bit Octa-Core Processor with Eight Kryo-485 Cores clocked at 2.96Ghz and built on 7nm Process technology.

This Chipset does support 5G Technology which is yet to be launched in India.

GPU used here is Adreno 640 and does comes with AIE (Artificial Intelligence Engine) Technology.

Qualcomm’s Hexagon 690 Processor is used as DSP (Digital Signal Processor).

Physical Appearance

On the front, there is a 6.5-inches FHD+ fluid 90Hz Super AMOLED Display certified with HDR10+ and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Something to note is that the display can go as bright as 1000nits which is another appreciating factor.

A Dew Drop Notch holding a 16-Megapixel Sensor allows for a screen to body ratio of 84% and still be considered as bezel-less.

Whereas on the back, there is a Quad-Camera setup and an awkwardly placed RealMe logo.

Quad Camera Setup

There is a Quad Camera Setup at the back offering 4-Different Camera Sensors as the name suggests, which includes-

  • Regular 64-Megapixel Sensor with an aperture of f/1.8
  • 13-Megapixel Telephoto Lens with f/2.5 aperture for 2x Optical Zoom
  • 8-Megapixel Ultra-Wide-Angle Lens with f/2.2 Aperture
  • 2-Megapixel Depth Sensor

Apart from there, there is a flash to support in low-lighting.

Keep in mind that none of the cameras supports OIS which cannot be expected considering the price to specifications ratio.


You can grab the Realme X2 Pro for 29,990 INR available exclusively on Flipkart and Realme’s Official Website but you might not be able to get it.

Unfortunately, the Realme X2 Pro will be available only for a few customers on invite basis just like OnePlus did with OnePlus One back in 2014.

Market Competition

Realme X2 Pro directly competes with OnePlus 7 and even with Asus ROG 2 to some extent.

Which one should you get?

If Gaming is your priority or looking to get the best and fastest processor available in the market, go with either Realme X2 Pro or Asus ROG 2.

Users having Camera as their highest priority can any day go with the Realme X2 Pro without any doubt.

Now for some, User Interface could be a priority as well and in that case, we would highly recommend you to go with the Asus ROG 2 as it offers a near-Stock Android Experience without compromising on performance, battery or display.

ColorOS on Realme X2 Pro is a deal-breaker for me and is just too bad to resist. Though it depends on personal preference.

We have a dedicated Article to explain how bad ColorOS is. Which is why we feel that Realme has ruined a perfect phone.

For some exceptions out there looking to get faster-charging speeds, Realme X2 Pro is a no brainer.
