Following the success of Realme 1, the Oppo‘s sub-brand split up from its parent company to become an independent brand. Now, Realme is prepping up to launch the Realme 2, the successor of Realme 1 that was launched earlier this year.

The company has sent out media invites for the Realme 2 launch event, which is scheduled to take place in India on 28th August. Recently, the firm teased a couple of features of the upcoming phone, including the notched display and dual rear cameras.

Today, the company has confirmed that the phone will be backed by a 4,230mAh battery, which is an upgrade compared to the 3,300mAh battery on its predecessor.

Recently, the phone’s retail box and press renders were leaked online, which had revealed both the features that the company teased. The leaked render also confirms that there’ll be a fingerprint sensor on the back panel, unlike the Realme 1.

Currently, no more information is available regarding the phone. However, it is being speculated that the phone will carry a 6.23-inch Full HD+ display and pack MediaTek MT6771 Helio P60 processor — the same one that powers the Realme 1 and the newly announced Oppo F9 and F9 Pro. There’ll be a couple of variants of the phone, based on the memory configuration, which is believed to go up to 6GB.

While there’s no information about the phone’s pricing, we are confident that it’ll definitely be priced under Rs. 20,000 (approximately $285) to take on the likes of recently launched Xiaomi Mi A2. However, to know the phone’s specifications, pricing, and availability details, we’ll have to wait for the company to officially unveil the device, which doesn’t seem far away.

To recall, the Realme 1 comes with a 6-inch Full-HD+ display and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC clocked at 2GHz with a dual-core AI-specific chip. It features a 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front snapper. It runs on Android Oreo-based ColorOS and is fuelled by a 3,410mAh battery.
