In May, our David Ruddock called the realme X "the most powerful 'budget' phone I've ever used." Fast forward to October, and realme has its sights set on a more prestigious target: the high-end market at large. Here's what we know about the upcoming realme X2 Pro, headed for Asia and Europe.

The X2 Pro is expected to house a quad-camera system not unlike the one found on the realme XT, pictured above. Onboard is a mind-melting 64MP setup, complete with a f/1.8 main lens with integrated 20X hybrid zoom, a 115º wide angle lens for snapping broad landscapes, a portrait lens for close-up shots, and a telephoto lens for capturing faraway targets. Nightscape 2.0 night mode is also on tap for snapping detailed low-light shots.

The realme X2 Pro is reportedly packing a 6.55" full-HD display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. Under the hood hums an industry-leading Snapdragon 855+ SoC for powering through tasks like a flagship should. Battery, storage, memory specs, and pricing haven't been confirmed yet, but we won't have to wait long to learn more; the realme X2 Pro is expected to launch in Asian and European markets later this month.

Despite an official announcement from realme that the X2 Pro would be launching soon, details beyond its quad-camera system have been little more than hearsay. Thanks to a realme spokesperson, we now have a few more details about the device, plus confirmed camera specs that line up with our previous report:

Spain, a strategic market to start operations in Europe

This new smartphone will be presented simultaneously in Asia and Europe. This reiterates the company's commitment to the European market and especially to Spain, where it has established the headquarters for its operations on the continent.
