Less than a week ago Oppo teased the arrival of the second device from its new sub-brand: Oppo Realme 2. The handset, which will be no more than a lower-midrange phone, will be officially available in India starting from tomorrow 4th September. It will be exclusive on the online store Flipkart and it won’t be available offline, at least for the initial period. The device will launch in two color variants: Diamond Black and Diamond Red, as well as two memory configurations: one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, and another with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB ROM.
The base configuration of Oppo Realme 2 will carry a price tag of just Rs. 8,990 which roughly translate into about €110 or $130 at the actual exchange rate, while the 4/64 GB variant will cost Rs. 10,990 that is equivalent to €130 or $155. You will also be able to return your current device and get a discount of up to INR 500 on the listing price. With this price, the new device is definitely one of the best choices in the entry-level segment. I consider it even better than Xiaomi Redmi 6A. Even though its price is very affordable, this device comes with a premium design composed of a glass back with a diamond-like finish and a bezel-less notched display.
The display has a wide diagonal of 6.2 inches but the resolution is only HD. But this resolution will improve the power management and it will make the huge 4230 mAh last even more. Besides the large capacity and the efficient display, there is also an AI Power Manager which helps in optimizing consumption. According to the company, Oppo Realme 2 will provide up to 44 hours of talk time. Under the hood, there is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, while on the rear side there is a dual camera with 13 and 2 MP resolution.
