Just a week after unveiling the Realme XT, the company had brought along a new smartphone. Dubbed as the Realme X2, the device is the successor of the original Realme X. However, this phone was unveiled almost 4 months ago and we’re just seeing it launch in Nepal. A good phone coming this late, kind of bums us out!
By the look of it, the Realme X2 is somewhat based on the Realme XT. However, this one uses the Snapdragon 730G SoC, unlike XT which features the Snapdragon 712 chipset. Furthermore, the device supports 30W flash charging and also features an NFC chip.
Talking about its display, it has a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display panel. And in that regard, it is similar to the XT. As it is with the phones with AMOLED screen these days, the X2 features an in-display fingerprint sensor as well.
On the back, it has a quad-camera setup. The main lens uses a 64 MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 Sensor. The rest are 8 MP ultra-wide lens, 2 MP macro, and 2 MP depth sensor. As for the front camera, there’s a 32 MP selfie shooter. Moreover, this device can record videos with the 8 MP ultra-wide lens and also includes features like real-time video bokeh.
The device is powered by a 4, 000 mAh battery and as mentioned above, it does support 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4. Furthermore, the device will be available in two RAM variants. A 6GB one and an 8GB one. The internal storage on these variants will be either 64GB, 128GB. Also, there’s a dedicated microSD card slot that allows memory expansion up to 256GB.

Realme X2 Price and Availability in Nepal
Realme Nepal‘s official online partner “Planet Realme” has finally brought the Realme X2 in Nepal. For now, only the 8/128GB of the “Pearl White” color variant is available for Rs. 35,990 on Daraz. As for the pricing, I think Realme has done a fair job considering there’s only a difference of about NRs. 4,000 between the price in Nepal and India. I wonder if this is a damage control tactics from the company to shadow the disastrous launch of the new Realme 5i.
