Another notch coming: Realme 2 teased for Indian launch

It was followed by the launch of the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 in April. The ZenFone Max Pro M1 competed with the Redmi Note 5 Pro in specifications while substantially under-cutting it in pricing.

Oppo F9 has been launched after some initial leaks and rumours. The Realme 1 was Realme's first smartphone.

It's unclear when Oppo's sub-brand Realme will be ready to announce the Realme 2 but it will most likely be very soon and the launch of the refreshed website is a preparation for it. It features thin-bezel design similar to Oppo F7, and is powered by MediaTek Helio P60 SoC. The Realme 1 went up for sale in India with a price tag of a meagre Rs 8,999. The 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant and the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant cost ₹10,990 ($156) and ₹13,990 ($199) respectively.

Oh! And she also got a piggyback ride from James Corden into a California Starbucks where she ordered a grande coffee. We're not talking karaoke singing; we're talking full-fledged harmonies and Celine Dion impressions and rap verses.

In July, the company announced sales figures of Realme 1 saying that it received an overwhelming response online with over 400,000 units sold in just 40 days. It is available in three variants - 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant for Rs 8,990, 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant for Rs 10,990 and 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant for Rs 13,990. Realme has also stated that it will roll out the Android Pie update to the Realme 1. The graphic showed the upper side of the Realme 2 along with the words "A Notch Above".

Moving on, the phone will feature a dual-camera setup at the back.

Black and blue colors of the phone were teased, as seen above, with the same pattern on the back. As of now, it's unknown whether the back will be made of fibreglass or glass. For capturing images and recording videos, the smartphone has a dual rear camera setup that includes a 16-megapixel primary sensor along with an f/1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor paired with an f/2.4 aperture, alongside an LED flash. It also sports rear-facing fingerprint sensor and supports face unlock. The Realme 2's fingerprint sensor will be a welcome and much-needed improvement for both security and convenience. The image above, with the tagline "A Notch Above", was posted on the company's website, but then quickly pulled. Naturally, the site makes no mention of Realme's connection with Oppo. Madhav Sheth, Chief Executive Officer, Realme India also revealed that the price of the upcoming phone will fall under an affordable category as the brand wants to cater to the aam aadmi (common man).
