JUST in time for the holiday season, realme has launched the realme X2 Pro in Malaysia. This flagship device from the Shenzhen-based smartphone maker comes equipped with the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor alongside a 64MP “Hawk-Eye” quad-camera setup.

“We are glad to be launching this amazing device in Malaysia. For the past two months, we’ve been hearing from our friends, media and realme fans as they are expecting to get their hands on realme’s strongest and best value flagship smartphone - the realme X2 Pro.

This full speed flagship device is a result of realme’s Dare to Leap attitude as we believe strongly in offering customers access to leap-forward performance,” said realme Malaysia’s brand manager Tiffany Teh during the launch.

The octa-core Snapdragon 855 Plus processor forms the core of the X2 Pro, with its Adreno 640 GPU that allows the processor to work 15% faster in graphics rendering compared to the base version of the Snapdragon 855. If anything, the X2 Pro sounds like a great device for gaming – its Dolby Atmos Dual Stereo Speakers certainly helps make it so.

The smartphone also sports a 4,000mAh battery, on top of what the company calls an AI cooling technology that detects applications that are not utilised frequently and subsequently stops them from running to save battery.

More impressively, the realme X2 Pro supports 50W SuperVOOC Flash Charge via USB-C. With this, the company says that the phone can go from 0% battery life to 100% in just 35 minutes. The charging mechanics are protected by an “intelligent five-core chip system”, which provides real-time monitoring of the electrical current.

Four for the count

realme gets real, launches flagship X2 Pro smartphone in Malaysia

The realme X2 Pro sports a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen with a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio. The display is a 90Hz Ultra Smooth Display, which is claimed to have earned Full Care Display Certification TUV Rheinland for low-brightness stroboscopic and low blue light protection (better for the eyes).

Sitting in the little teardrop notch on top of the screen is a 16MP selfie shooter that comes with a bunch of AI beautification functions. At the rear, however, are four cameras: a 64MP main camera, an 8MP 115-degrees wide-angle lens, a 13MP telephoto lens and a 2MP portrait lens. This module, we’re told, uses Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 1/1.72 sensor.

The rear cameras are able to record 4K image resolution videos, a capability paired with the UIS anti-shake algorithm and a built-in gyroscope to correct hand movements or shaking in real-time. Additionally, the X2 Pro can also take real-time videos with blurring effects and 960fps slow-motion videos.

The realme X2 Pro prices at US$574.40 (RM2,399). The available version has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. As part of a promotion, those interested can attend an offline midnight sale on Dec 7, 2019 at DirectD Gadget Mega Store, Petaling Jaya to purchase the phone with free realme Buds wireless, realme Power Bank and realme bagpack.
