Realme has today launched three affordable smartphones under the Q2 brand. The trio are entirely new, with 5G capabilities and Android 10 out of the box.

Realme Q2 5G

The regular Realme Q2 is built around a 6.5-inch LCD, with its fingerprint scanner on the side. Just like its Pro big bro, the vanilla Q2 has a Dimensity 800U chip but it comes with either 4GB or 6GB RAM while the storage is 128GB.

The Q2 has the same 48MP main camera and 8MP ultrawide snapper, but only gets one of the 2MP extra units – for macro. A 16MP selfie snapper on the front is nested in a punch hole in the left corner.

The Realme Q2 brings more battery capacity – 5,000 mAh but the fast-charging rate is “only” 30W which is still nicely speedy.
