Now that our Realme X2 Pro review is out, it’s time to see what the company can offer in the mid-range segment. realme is a well-known brand in Asia, especially in India, but it has to make a name for itself once again now that it has started sales in Europe too. And what better way to do it than with a well equipped and affordable midrange like the Realme X2.
Surely, the X2 is no Pro but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a punch. The combination of an upper mid-range SoC, an OLED panel, a premium build, and a versatile quad-camera setup at a regular mid-range price is really hard to ignore when shopping on a budget. And quick market research shows that the choice in this particular price range is rather limited. So it’s probably safe to say that Realme’s aggressive pricing of the standard X2 will bear fruits in the future.
