Realme has made a major splash in 2019 with a series of impressively low-priced devices, but now the company is releasing its first phone that could seriously be described as high-end. The X2 Pro has Qualcomm’s fastest processor available, a screen with a high refresh rate, and a quad-camera array including a giant 64-megapixel sensor. All of this means it’s Realme’s priciest phone to date, but the spec sheet keeps it extremely competitive.
The X2 Pro’s industrial design is pretty boring, but there’s nothing really wrong with it either. There’s an unobtrusive waterdrop notch in the display, along with a bottom bezel that’s only very slightly larger than the other three. Realme has moved to a glass back panel for the X2 Pro, which feels better to the touch than the previous plastic designs but obviously compromises on durability.
