The OPPO Realme 2 is the successor of the Realme 1 that was launched some time ago. The Realme 2 has been launched in India. If we recall what the Realme 1 was like, the OPPO F7 Youth comes to our mind, which pretty much was a good phone. This time around, we have OPPO’s latest offering, the OPPO Realme 2. When put in comparison with the Realme 1, the Realme 2 seems like a slight downgrade in the processor department with the Snapdragon 450 Soc rather than the Helio P60.
Similarly, the Realme 2 does not really feel like a real successor because apart from the choice of chipset, RAM has also been compromised to 4 GB and 3 GB options only. While the Realme 1 resembled the F7 Youth, the successor looks like the OPPO A3S with a fingerprint sensor. However, what is an improvement is that the Realme 2 has a bigger battery this time, with a capacity of 4230 mAh.
Display wise, it has a 6.2-inch screen which is 0.2 inches bigger than its predecessor, but the resoultion has been downgraded from FullHD+ to HD+. Similarly, the camera setup is also different with the Realme 2 featuring dual 13+2 MP cameras at the back and an 8 MP shooter at the front. The camera features include Portrait mode and the infamous AI among the others. There is also a notch for those notch lovers out there.
