It is fairly doubtless that you’ve got by no means heard of Realme earlier than. Previously a sub-brand of Oppo’s, the now-independent firm is making waves with its reasonably priced and classy telephones in India, and it is setting its sights on Southeast Asia. 

The Realme 2 prices $120 (roughly £90 or AU$165 transformed), has a 6.2-inch notched show and twin rear cameras. However its most compelling function is its stunning rear end that makes the cellphone glitter with a diamond-inspired design. When you’re on the lookout for one thing totally different, the Realme 2 will certainly catch your eye.

Oh, so shiny!

Provided that it is a finances cellphone, do not count on an excessive amount of on the subject of . The Realme 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chip, and whereas it did not really feel too sluggish, it isn’t precisely a top-end gaming performer.

The 720p display is not the sharpest, particularly because it’s 6.2 inches, and the display icons are too massive for my style. You may’t shrink them both, except you obtain a third-party launcher. 

It has twin rear cameras within the type of a 13- and 2-megapixel shooters.

But it surely does have some cool options apart from its design — the Realme 2 runs Oppo’s Shade OS on prime of Android Eight.1 and comes with a digital SIM card that allows you to knowledge roam while you’re touring abroad. The cameras even have a button for 2x zoom, however as a result of the secondary rear digital camera is simply simply 2 megapixels (and is used as a depth sensor for portrait photographs), I think that this 2x zoom is digital as a substitute of an optical or telephoto zoom.

The Realme 2 is presently obtainable in Southeast Asia and India, and it isn’t anticipated to hit Western markets anytime quickly.
