Following the steps of OnePlus, Realme separated from its parent company Oppo last month. The newly-separated brand has now teased the launch of its second smartphone, after the Realme 1, which could be known as the Realme 2. The teaser – with the title ‘A Notch Above’ – is already up on Realme’s website and reveals that the smartphone will sport a display notch and the same diamond cut back design, in a new Blue colour option. The phone is also seen to have a horizontally aligned dual rear camera setup. Surprisingly, this time, Realme provides the fingerprint sensor.
Apart from these certain designing cues, no other specifications or features have yet been revealed in the teaser image. Information around launch date and pricing has also not been revealed, but we can expect a launch in a few weeks.
To recall, the first smartphone from the brand i.e., Realme 1, was launched exclusively in India in May this year at an unbelievable price. The base model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is priced at Rs. 8,990, while for 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage, it costs Rs. 10,990.
In terms of specifications, the Realme 1 has a 6-inch Full-HD+ display, an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 chipset clocked at 2GHz, a dual-core AI-specific chip, a 13MP rear camera and a 3,410mAh battery under the hood.
Currently, Realme is headed by Sky Li, who has previously worked as the overseas head for the parent company, Oppo. He is credited with having helped the Chinese phone giant grow from just 3 markets initially to presence in over 31 countries and regions.
It will be interesting to see Realme 2 as the first device from Company was also great.
