Announcement. Realme Q2i, Q2, Q2 Pro - how indecent it is!

Prices for smartphones supporting 5G networks are gradually falling lower and lower. And, in my opinion, have already reached the baseboard. And Realme with its new Q2 line is ahead of the rest.

The youngest and cheapest is Realme Q2i. ¥ 998 (₽11,400, $ 148) on launch in China. The regular price is promised to be higher, ¥ 1,199 (₽13,700, $ 178). The weak points are obvious. Low resolution IPS-screen - 6.5 ″, 720 × 1600 (270 ppi). Simple cameras, hardly too strong. 8 MP front, 13 + 2 + 2 MP rear (main, depth sensor, macro). Otherwise, everything is good. The MediaTek Dimensity 720 chipset is about three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. Typically, the average amount of memory is 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage. Excellent capacious 5000 mAh battery. Fast charging is not very fast, but there is still 18W.

The middle brother is Realme Q2. Dream of an idiot, as for me. I don't see any weak points. IMHO, even more interesting than the older brother. ¥ 1199 (₽13700, $ 178) for 4 + 128 GB, ¥ 1299 (₽14800, $ 193) for 6 + 128 GB. Again, the prices are on sale. Regular ones will be ¥ 1299 (₽14800, $ 193) and ¥ 1399 (₽16000, $ 208), respectively.

Chipset slightly more powerful than Q2i - MediaTekDimensity 800U (although the difference is symbolic, by and large). The screen remains IPS 6.5 ″, but the resolution has grown - 1080 × 2400 (405 ppi). The refresh rate of the screen has also grown - as much as 120 Hz instead of the traditional 60 Hz. The battery is of the same capacity, 5000 mAh. But charging has accelerated - now it's 30 watts. Cameras have also become more serious. 16 MP frontal. At the back is a trio of 48 + 8 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle, macro).

The older brother is Realme Q2 Pro. By and large, this is a slightly simplified twin of the Realme X7 smartphone - more modest cameras. Sale prices are ¥ 1,599 (₽18,300, $ 237) for 8 + 128GB and ¥ 1,799 (₽20,600, $ 267) for 8 + 256GB. Regular - ¥ 1,799 (₽20,600, $ 267) and ¥ 1999 (₽22800, $ 297), respectively.

The chipset is the same, MediaTek Dimensity 800U. The screen became SuperAMOLED 6.44 ″. Accordingly, there is no high refresh rate and the fingerprint scanner has moved under it (under the screen). The resolution is classic, 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi). The battery has a slightly smaller capacity, 4300 mAh, but with a crazy fast charge of 65 W. The front camera is the same resolution as the Q2, but with a different aperture (if it's not a typo, of course). There are four rear cameras - a depth sensor has been added to the main, wide-angle and macro cameras. 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP - the resolution of the remaining modules is unchanged.

Of minor troubles. No support for LTE Band 20. Apparently, there is no NFC. If I understood correctly, the older model also lacks support for memory cards, but this is inaccurate.

On sale the other day. We are looking forward to appearing on AliExpress.
