realme X2 Pro : Cheapest 90Hz Gaming Smartphone?


realme X2 Pro : Everything But The Kitchen Sink

The new realme X2 Pro (MY) seems designed to be realme’s highlight of the year, with everything thrown but the kitchen sink.

In fact, it has all of the hallmarks of a gaming smartphone – large display, high-performance and a long battery life!

90 Hz Super AMOLED Display

The realme X2 Pro (MY) has a large 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels.

In addition, it features a 90 Hz refresh rate, which promises silky-smooth graphics at the expense of battery life.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+

The realme X2 Pro (MY) is built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, which is just a speed-binned version of the regular Snapdragon 855. They are otherwise identical.

This is the same mobile platform used in the ASUS ROG Phone 2 and the Black Shark 2 Pro gaming smartphones.

Snapdragon 855 Plus vs Snapdragon 855 : What's Different?

The only differences are the clock speeds of two parts in the Snapdragon 855 Plus :

  • its single high-performance Kryo 485 Gold core is clocked at 2.96 GHz, instead of 2.84 GHz.
  • its Adreno 640 GPU is clocked at 672 MHz, instead of 585 MHz.

In other words, its advantage in mobile gaming is a 4% increase in the short boost performance of the CPU, and a 14.9% increase in peak GPU performance.
