Chinese smartphone maker realme was tipped to launch realme Q2 series on October 13 for two times in the past few days. Unsurprisingly, it happens to be true as the brand has now officially confirmed it to be the official launch date for these two smartphones on Weibo.
Last year, realme launched realme Q as a rebranded realme 5 Pro for the Chinese market. For its successors – realme Q2 (RMX2117) and realme Q2 Pro (RMX2173), the brand seems to have tweaked the global versions of realme 7 and realme 7 Pro, as per leaks and certifications.
These two devices are expected to come with 5G chipsets instead of 4G silicons found in the realme 7 series. The standard realme Q2 is said to be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 720 as per Geekbench, whereas the realme Q2 Pro is tipped to feature MediaTek Dimensity 800U.
Another difference between these China-only devices and their international siblings is that only the costlier Q2 Pro will sport a quad-camera setup with a downgraded 48MP primary sensor paired with an 8MP ultra-wide unit, a 2MP macro snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the other hand, the regular Q2 will come with a 48MP (wide) + 8MP (ultra-wide) + 2MP (depth) triple camera setup. However, both of them will have the same 16MP selfie camera.
Apart from the above-mentioned dissimilarities, the realme Q2 series is expected to be similar to realme 7 series in all other factors, including 60Hz Super AMOLED display and 65W fast charging for the realme Q2 Pro and 90Hz LCD panel and 30W fast charging on the standard realme Q2.
Last but not least, the realme Q2 Pro will be also available in a leather finish just like the recently launched realme 7 Pro Sun Kissed Leather Special Edition.
