Realme 2 vs Realme 1: Bigger display with notch, Bigger battery


The Realme 1 was the first smartphone from the brand, which caught a lot of attention and the company is now gearing up for the launch of the Realme 2 as a successor to the Realme 1 smartphone in India. Realme has already teased a lot of aspects of the Realme 2. Here is a brief comparison between the Realme 2 vs Realme 1.


The Realme 1 has a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display and the Realme 2 will go a notch above to offer a bigger (at least 6.2-inch) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio along with a notch on top of the smartphone with a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution, which is step back, as the Realme 1 has an FHD+ display. The Realme 1 has a Corning Gorilla Glass protection and the Realme 2 is also expected to offer similar or even a better protection.



The Oppo Realme 1 has a single 13 MP camera, whereas the Realme 2 is likely to offer a dual camera setup with a 13 MP primary sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor. This setup will be similar to the one seen on the Honor 9 Lite, where the secondary sensor will be used to get bokeh effect. Both smartphones have an 8 MP front-facing selfie camera on the front with support for face unlock.

Fingerprint sensor

The Realme 2 has a fingerprint sensor on the back of the smartphone whereas the Realme 1 does have a fingerprint sensor. Along with the fingerprint sensor, both smartphones will have Face Unlock using the front-facing camera. Along with the fingerprint sensor, the Realme 2 also supports Face unlock and smart unlock.


The Oppo Realme 1 has a 3400 mAh Li-ion battery with standard charging capability, whereas the Realme 2 has a 4320 mAh Li-ion battery with support for fast charging, which was also missing on the original Realme 1 smartphone. Both smartphones do have a micro USB port with a 3.5 mm headphone jack.


The Oppo Realme 1 was priced at Rs 13,999 for the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. And the Realme 2 is expected to cost Rs 14,999 for 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant. The company might also launch a lower-priced variant with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.

Coming to the Realme 2, the smartphone will be available in 3/32 GB or 4/64 GB RAM and storage. In terms of pricing, the Realme 2 is identical to the Realme 1 pricing with the price tag of Rs 8,990 and Rs 10,990, respectively.


The Realme 2 is powered by the Snapdragon 450 SoC, whereas the Realme 1 is powered by the Helio P60 SoC, which is a much powerful processor compared to the Snapdragon 450. So, if performance is the main priority, then Realme 1 seems like a right choice.
