Realme has updated its portfolio of smartphones with three new releases. The three new smartphones launched today will be part of Realme’s new Q lineup. The Realme Q2, Q2 Pro, and Q2i are limited to the Chinese market for now. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price & availability of Realme Q2, Q2 Pro, and Q2i in Nepal.

Realme Q2 Pro Overview

Design and Display

Let’s start with the top of the line Realme Q2 Pro 5G. It is the only device in the lineup to sport a Super AMOLED display. The display here measures 6.4-inch. There is a circular cut-out on the top left corner of the device inside which lies the front-facing camera. The phone boasts a screen to body ratio of 90.8%. Similarly, the display supports the 180Hz touch sampling rate. However, there is no sign of a higher refresh rate. Other notable feature of the display includes the 60000:1 contrast ratio, 600 nits of peak brightness and the under-display fingerprint sensor. Realme Q2 Pro Vegan Leather Finish

Realme Q2 Pro is offered in two finishes – one with eco-friendly leather and another with the C-bit color scheme. If you recall, the company recently launched a “Sun-kissed Leather” edition of the Realme 7 Pro as well. Likewise, we saw the C-bit color scheme with double-plated AG technology in the Realme X7 Pro.

Performance and Memory

The performance of the device is backed by MediaTek’s Dimensity 800U chipset. This 5G-enabled chipset features two Cortex A76 ‘Big’ cores clocked at 2.4GHz and six Cortex A55 ‘small’ cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The graphics are handled by Mali G57. The integrated modem in the chipset supports 5G + 5G dual Sim stand by, NSA/SA network but only on the sub-6GHz band. MediaTek Dimensity 800U

In terms of memory, it comes with only 8GB of RAM. Users can choose between 128GB and 256GB of internal storage.


Realme Q2 Pro flaunts a quad-camera setup at the back, which along with the LED flash is enclosed inside a rectangular camera bump. The 48MP primary camera has a 6P lens combination and an aperture of f/1.8. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide angle that boasts 119-degrees of Field of View. In addition to them, there is a 2MP sensor for macro shots (4cm) and a monochrome portrait sensor (f/2.4). The device can record 4K videos @ 30fps, and 720p slow-mo videos at up to 240fps.Realme Q2 Pro Camera Setup

Similarly, there is support for both UIS and UIS Max video stabilization. Other important features of the rear camera setup include Super Night Scene, Time-lapse photography, background virtualization, and human distortion correction. On the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.5 which can record 1080p slow-motion videos up to 120fps.

Rest of the specs

It features a 4300mAh battery that supports 65W (10V/6.5A) fast charging. The company claims the 65W fast charger can charge the device completely in 33 minutes. Similarly, only three minutes of charging will add one hour of screen on time or 2 days of standby time. Realme Q2 Pro has ultra-linear speakers and Hi-Res Audio certification. It ships with Android 10 with Realme UI 2.0 on top.

Realme Q2 5G Overview

Moving on, the Realme Q2 5G on the other hand features a slightly bigger display that measures 6.5-inch diagonally. While it comes with the punch-hole cut-out, Realme has used an LCD panel here. As compensation, the device features a 120Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz. It is an FHD+ panel with screen to body ratio of 90.7%. It comes with the same processor but users can choose between 4GB and 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM.Realme Q2

Irrespective of what RAM you go for, you get 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Similarly, the camera setup also remains the same, except for the exclusion of the monochrome portrait sensor. It features a bigger battery of 5,000mAh. But, Realme has included support for up to 30W fast charging only on Q2 5G.
