Realme 2 Key Features

Here is a summary of its key features :

2.5D Composite Multi-Laminate Back Panel

The Realme 2 features a diamond-inspired back cover made from a composite material with multiple glass-like layers that are scratch- and wear-resistant. It is also optically-coated to deliver  a refractive lustre.

Notch Full Screen

The Realme 2 has a 6.2-inch Notch Full Screen, with 88.8% screen-to-body ratio. Thanks to its bezel-less design, it offers a 17% larger view for gaming and multitasking.

Long-lasting 4,230mAh Battery

The Realme 2 has a large 4,230 mAh battery that is managed by their AI Power Master software to provide all-day endurance, by intelligently suspending inactive apps and processes to minimise power consumption. Here are the results of Realme’s lab tests :

Normal Network Calls 44 hours
Music Playing (WiFi) 18 hours
Video Playback (WiFi) 15 hours
Gaming (WiFi) 10 hours

AI Power Manager

Without affecting smooth working of apps, AI Power Manager automatically optimises the power consumption of apps and controls the number of active processor cores.

  • Quick App Freezing: AI Power Manager can put the background apps in the quick-freezing folder to effectively cut off the frequent and meaningless mutual wake-up between apps to save power. Laboratory data: About 5% energy saved per 24 hours compared to mobile phones without turning on app-freezing.
