Aside the official teasers released via the company’s official twitter page, they had also been few leaks and rumors from the company’s home country, in China.

In this post, I’ll be putting together ten of the official leaks and rumors we’ve seen so. While the official leaks are somewhat confirmed and authentic, you might want to take in the rumor leaks with a pinch of salt, pending when the device is released officially, which according to the company, will be SOON!

1. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus

Among the few official teasers, is the confirmation that the Realme X2 Pro will run the latest and upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU. The Realme have not used Snapdragon 8XX, but as it is, the company will be making a jump to the highest and the latest of SD 8X-series.

Snapdragon 855 Plus is the higher version of the SD 855. The CPU has been used in few high-end smartphones like the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro, the OnePlus 7T and even the Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro Exclusive Edition. The chip is a Octa-core 2.96 GHz CPU along Adreno 640 GPU, which Realme could pair with upto 8GB of RAM.

2. A 90Hz Fast and Smooth Display

It has also been officially confirmed by the company, the the Realme X2 Pro will come with a 90Hz fluid display. Wait a minute, what is this 90Hz display all about? To simply put, 90Hz is a measurement of a screen’s refresh rate. It determines how many times in a second a screen displays an image. For example a 30Hzscreen will display 30 frames per second, a 60Hz will show 60 frames per second and 90 Hz will show 90 frames per second and so on. Now the higher the frame rate displayed per each second determines how smoother and fluid the screen will be.

Some flagship devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro among others, have already adopted this display technology, and there are even more premium smartphones with above 90Hz display, like the Sharp Aqua Zero 2 with a massive 240Hz, launched in September 2019. But in a review conducted by Android Authority, higher display Hertz do have a toll on battery life, hence the Realme X2 Pro will come with option to switch between 90 or 60 hertz display.

3. 50W Super VOOC fast charging

The company has also confirmed that the X2 Pro will feature 50W Super VOOC Flash charging tech, which the company claimed can charge the device from 0 to 100% in just 35 minutes. While there was no any specific word on the actual battery size charged in the given marathon stats above, it could still be the only commercially available device filled from 0 to 100% in 35 seconds.

4. Audiophile? How about a dual stereo speakers on the Realme X2 Pro?
