Despite its flagship state, the phone still arrives with a water-drop notch display at the top front, which houses a single 16-megapixels selfie snapper with Sony IMX471 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 1.0μm pixel size.

But the phone sports a 6.55-inch FHD+ display with 91.7% screen-to-body ratio, HDR10+ support, hardware-level DC Dimming 2.0, 90Hz refresh rate and 135Hz touch sampling rate. Higher refresh rate of 90Hz is just the the new thing for flagship phones.
Even the OnePlus 7T comes with such refresh rate and the upcoming Pixel 4 might still arrive with one. 90Hz refresh rate smooth the screen display, like scrolling through timelines or swiping between home screen pages, and the text still remains readable in motion.
Arrives with a 3D glass back panel from that low-priced plastic back panel design. There is still that common industrial design, of which we are not angry at tho.
The screen display bezels are quite smaller, and minimalist. Despite that, the company still squeezes in stereo speakers with the above-average haptic feedback system that provides quality sounds.

During the launch, the company also announced its partnership with a renowned Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, that resulted in a Realme X2 PRO Master Edition that sports a frosted glass, logo and master signature design on the back panel.
It is fueled by a 4000mAh battery capacity with 50W (10W/5A) SuperVOOC fast charging. That allows you to charge the device up to 80 percent of a full charge in half an hour. This isn’t as fast the new Oppo’s own new Reno Ace with 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge.
