The Oppo sub-brand, Realme which was recently separated to form an independent brand in the Indian market has launched its latest smartphone, Realme 2 in India. This handset is said to be the successor to the previously launched handset Realme 1. However, it does not feel like a true successor to the Realme 1 considering RAM capacity and the fact that it is powered by a Snapdragon 450 SoC. But it does sport a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which was missing on its predecessor. The Realme 2 comes with features such as face unlock, a 4,230mAh battery, dual 4G VoLTE support, and up to 4GB of RAM.
