Realme 2 leaks ahead of official announcement

An image of the upcoming Realme 2 went live on the company’s website ahead of official announcement. The image has since been taken down.

The image showed the new Realme 2 from the front and the back. There wasn’t any accompanying information and the image didn’t lead to a dedicated page for the device. The only thing accessible was the image on the homepage along with the tagline “A notch above”.

While that’s not much to go on, the image does give us a few ideas as to what to expect. For one, the display now has the popular notch indicating a shift towards a more “bezel-less” design. Next, the camera on the back is now a dual sensor system, unlike the single camera on the back of the Realme 1. Lastly, the Realme 2 also has a fingerprint sensor on the back, a feature that was missing entirely on the Realme 1.

Much like the Realme 1, the Realme 2 also has a geometric pattern underneath the glass back. The phone in the image was shown in two colors, a black and a blue.

From the images, the Realme 2 looks remarkably similar to a bunch of Oppo phones, including the Oppo F7 and the recent F9, albeit with a minor differences. This leads us to believe the Realme 2 could also have the same MT6771 Helio P60 processor as these phones (or Realme 1, for that matter), along with a 6.23-inch 2280×1080 display and 16+2MP rear camera, although that’s pure speculation on our part.

The Realme 2 is expected to be priced under INR 20,000 ($285), with the exact pricing yet unknown. We don’t have an official release date yet. We will update as more information is known.
