To truly earn the Pro moniker, Realme needs to add a punchier processor and a Full-HD display in the Realme 2 Pro
Realme announced the arrival of Realme 2 Pro a few days ago. Now that it’s confirmed that the smartphone will be launched on September 27, Realme has put out a new teaser for the phone. The Realme 2, the successor to the Realme 1, was launched recently in August. We found out the smartphone was more of a variant to the Realme 1 rather an update; you can find out more about that here.
Realme 2 Pro: What to expect
The first look at the teaser reveals two things—a teardrop notch has been added at the front, replacing the eyebrow and the diamond cut design at the back of the phone has been removed. A closer look reveals that the phone has received a some subtle design overhauls. The display has been pushed further to the bezels, the fingerprint scanner at the back is now more circular than oval and the phone retains the headphone jack and the MicroUSB port at the bottom.
Realme hasn’t revealed any other hardware specifications of the Realme 2 Pro.
Realme 2 Pro: What we want
The Realme 2 came with upgrades in terms of design and battery, but made a compromise on a high resolution display and fast processor. To truly earn the “Pro" moniker, Realme needs to add a punchier processor and a Full-HD display in the Realme 2 Pro, which may be possible as it doesn’t have to be a sub ₹ 10,000 phone anymore.
