    The Realme 2 has a screen size of 6.2 inches, and a screen-to-body ratio as high as 88.8%. Made of 2.5D nanoscale composite material, the back cover produces a diamond-like effect of light and shadow. The Realme 2 comes with a 4230mAh large battery and an AI Power Manager to provide an exceptionally long battery life of 44 hours. The rear camera features 13MP + 2MP cameras with optimized portrait modes, giving clearer profiles and a more natural bokeh background.

    Built with the AI Beauty 2.0 algorithm, the 8MP front camera enables differentiated beautification of men and women in the same photo. With available colours of red diamond, blue diamond and black diamond, and two optional combos of either 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM or 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, the Realme 2 is 'A Notch Above' in design, performance and experience, with an affordable price.

    The diamond-like design of Realme's first-generation of phones was well received and favoured by young consumers on social media and shopping platforms immediately upon their release. By adjusting the curvature of the middle frame and the optimization of the design details, Realme 2's back battery cover also uses 12 layers of nanoscale sheet laminates, making it more scratch and water resistant.

    The Realme 2 has a 6.2-inch super-view full notch screen with a resolution of 1520 × 720 and a length width ratio of 19:9. Through a more compact arrangement of the earpiece, front camera, and light sensor, coupled with a ultra-narrow 2.05mm bezel and upgraded dispensing process, the screen bezel is further narrowed by 16%, achieving a screen-to-body ratio of 88.8%.

    The Realme 2 has further optimized its development of the front and rear lenses. The innovative and personalized beauty solution AI 2.0 delivered through the 8MP front camera can identify 296 face recognition points and, through AI algorithms, recognize the gender, age, skin tone and even the skin type of characters in photos, and subsequently offer personalized beauty solutions. The dual-camera hardware combined with the software algorithms make the contour of the characters under the Realme 2 portrait mode clearer, the background bokeh more natural, and the photos more textured and layered without losing its details. It supports PDAF phase-focusing in which the fast focus can effectively reduce the waiting time.

    In terms of grasping, the Realme 2Pro comes with a 90.8% screen-to-body ratio that is similar to holding a conventional 5.5-inch phone with a 16:9 screen. Its back cover is the sectional lamination of 13-15 atomic layers. Exquisite carving represents the water drop back cover that comes with the sense of profundity, transparency, and high hardness. The back cover features an arc that fits the centre of the palm, and delivers a glass-like sense. In addition to the solemn Black Sea tone, Realme 2 Pro also offers Blue Ocean that reminds of the serene ocean, and crystal-like Ice Lake, matching the current fashion trend.

    The Realme 2Pro carries the magic Qualcomm Snapdragon 660AIE processor that features high- performance and low power consumption, adreno 512 GPU, and Qualcomm All-Ways Aware[TM] sensor hub and HVX, as well as a built-in AI engine. The combination guarantees an extremely smooth real AI experience. The Realme 2Pro is equipped with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM, and supports a 256GB microSD card extension. It also offers either 4GB + 64GB or 6GB + 64GB options at more affordable prices. The phone's 3500mAh battery, coupled with AI sleep mode that smartly senses the circumstances in which users are using the phone, allows users to use their phones for a whole day with ease, by employing different power saving strategies.

    The Realme 2Pro comes with 16MP rear dual cameras, with the primary camera equipped with a IMX398 sensor that supports dual-core focusing, F1.7 aperture and 6P lens; the secondary camera is mainly tasked with measuring the spatial distance of photographed objects in the portrait mode.
