Realme 2 Pro – Specifications & Review

What’s up guys, Shubham here! We’ve got here the Real Me 2 Pro. I actually didn’t know much about the company Real Me and for those of you guys who don’t know, Real Me is a sub-brand of Oppo and initially it started off exclusive to India.

Coming in at very budget prices, we had the Real Me 1 and Real e 2 was around about 10,000 rupees in India which is round about $150. So a very, very aggressive budget price point but with this Real Me 2 Pro, Real Me are now trying to enter the Southeast Asian market as well as the Middle Eastern market. Now how much this is going to be retailing for exactly Real Me have not told me this as yet.

As soon as I have more pricing information that’s going to be down in the description below so look out for that, but I have been told that it’s going to be very reasonably priced. Let’s get it unboxed. So the box itself was very clean, we’ve got this white and red combination going on here. Real Me 2 Pro over here. We’ve also got the Real Me 2 Pro logo on the left and right. Nothing at the top, bottom and at the back.

I’m assuming at the back it’ll probably have some more info when the retail version is out. And let’s get it outside. Initially presented with a smaller box that has the Real Me branding as well as the social icons. Now inside this small box is currently just a clear case. I’m assuming that the retail version will also have some paperwork as well as a SIM card ejector tool. Then we have the phone. We’re going to just put that to the side.

And it comes with a USB type-A to micro USB cable, not USB type-C, but once again we have to remember the budget pricing of this as well as a power break. I don’t believe this supports fast charging as far as I’m aware. Right, now let’s get to the phone. We’ll get rid of this plastic. Not bad. So we do have this blue version here which looks really nice.

It’s got this kind of glass effect here at the back but it is polycarbonate. But the standout feature of the Real Me 2 Pro is the display. Check this out. Now this is a 6.3″ full HD plus LCD display with minimal bezels as you can see. We’ve got a slight chin and we do have a notch but this notch isn’t like what we normally see on other devices. This is probably one of the smallest notches out there. It’s kind of like a drop that just comes in for the front-facing camera.

I’m quite digging this look and I personally really would not mind a notch as small as that. Now Real Me are saying that you’ve got a 90.8% screen to body ratio. Now these numbers vary depending on who’s measuring them so I take that with a pinch of salt. What I would say is that the screen to body ratio on this is very, very good especially for a reasonably priced device. Now inside this little drop notch that we’ve got there is a 16 mega pixel front-facing camera with an F2.0 aperture.

And it’s got loads of AI beauty stuff enabled within this. You guys might know that I’m not a huge fan of beauty modes from cameras but I do realize that it is quite popular in some markets and I believe that’s the reason why it’s here. Let’s just pop it open for a second. Wow, it’s crazy if I kind of cover my face you can’t see it, it’s fine. As soon as I take it, look at that, it just brightens up like anything. Kind of makes me look a few shades fairer.

I’m not a fan of that. You can just leave the AI beauty on. Very aggressive indeed. It’s made my face look silky smooth. I’m personally not a fan of that, you might be. There’s also a portrait mode from the front-facing camera where it’s going to try to blur the background. Now moving around on the right hand side, there is a power button. On the left hand side there are volume buttons as well as a SIM card tray.

Now this SIM card tray has space for a micro SD card so you can expand the storage on this which is great. But you also get space for two NANO SIM cards so you can have dual SIMs active on this as well as the SD card. I’ve seen lots of devices where you have to choose between an SD card or a second SIM because it’s part of the same slot. This actually has all of them, that’s definitely nice to see. At the bottom there is a 3.5mm headphone jack. There’s a micro USB importer as mentioned earlier on and there is the single bottom firing speaker.

And then we have the dual rear-facing camera setup. The primary camera at the back is 16 megapixels with a pretty wide F1.7 aperture. The secondary camera is mainly for depth information so when you’ve got the portrait mode, that’s when it’s mainly going to be used for. Now I’ve never test Real Me camera before so I’m not really sure how this is going to perform. There’s lots of AI features enabled in this including lots of beauty modes. I don’t mean to be negative on the beauty mode thing, it’s just something that I’m personally not a fan of unfortunately. And then we’ve got this fingerprint scanner here at the back which works really, really well. Check this out.

Boom, you’re in. It’s so, so fast. You’ve also got facial recognition. Without even you knowing it. I’m just going to try to unlock it here so you can see it. It’s pointing up, it’s not unlocked. Soon as I point it towards me, boom done. Very, very fast indeed. Now let’s talk about the specs. So this is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, and it comes with up to eight gigabytes of RAM. The eight gigabyte of RAM version has 128 gigabytes of storage.

However, if you want to go for more of the budget options, there is a 64 gigabyte version available with six gigabytes of RAM as well as another version with 64 gigabytes of storage and four gigabytes of RAM. So you’ve got a few options here depending on your budget. Now in terms of the software, you do have Android version 8.1 with Color OS 5.2 on top as a skin. Now this is the skin from Oppo which we have seen on many other devices. So if you have used Oppo devices in the past you’ll feel right at home with this. Finally for the battery.

You do have a pretty large 3,500 mAh battery which is pretty good for a device this size and should get you through the day. Of course this is going to vary on your usage but in terms of my first impressions, I think this is a really good smart phone. I’m really digging that minimal bezel display. Yes, there’s a notch but it’s a very small notch which personally I don’t mind. What do you guys think of this? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know.

As mentioned, as soon as I have some pricing information available I’ll be dropping that in the description. I expect this to be higher than the Real Me 2 of course because this is the pro version but I still expect it to be reasonably priced because when we do start getting towards that $300 mark, we do have things like the Poco phone which has the Snapdragon 845, so I’ll be interested to see what this comes in at but nevertheless, a very interesting device.

If you do want me to cover anything else with it then definitely let me know in the comments below. I’ll see what I can do with this. I hope you enjoyed this article and find it useful. We’ve got lots more content coming up on here. Thanks for reading.
