OPPO's Sub-brand RealMe 2 Smartphone Has Been Launched


About three months ago, OPPO launched a sub-brand of smartphone of its own and the RealMe 1 was released to the Indian market. Today in India still, that handset has just got its first successor, just after three months and it's officially called the RealMe 2. This could be the shortest launch interval I have ever seen since blogging about smartphones a few years back.

 The RealMe 2 will be released in two variants, one in 3GB/32GB and another in 4GB/64GB. Unfortunately for some, the this handset is offered with a notched screen together with its massive 6.2-inch IPS LCD display where resolution is pegged at only HD+ or 1520x720.

Processor wise, the RealMe 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 450 chipset paired with either of the two storage variants mentioned above with microSD card support up to 256GB right out of the box. Under the camera functionalities, there will be a dual rear camera setup pegged at 13MP + f/2.2 and 2MP + f2.4 apertures while the front facing shooter is at 8MP with f/2.2 aperture. See rest of specs below.
