Derek has also revealed that the Realme’s X2Pro will support only 4G connectivity. He had asked fans to guess the cost of the device. In the comments section of the same post, Derek has claimed a price of RMB 4,000 (~Rs 39,700) appears reasonable for the phone. The pricing looks expensive, considering the fact that Realme phones in China have been always been priced under RMB 1,999 (~Rs 19,900).

Most likely, the handset could be priced under RMB 3,000 (~Rs 29,700). This pricing will allow it to rival with Snapdragon 855+ powered Redmi K20 Pro Premium phone in China that sells at RMB 3,199 (~Rs 31,700) for the highest-end model that features 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. At present, there is no information on the specifications of the Realme X2Pro. A reliable Chinese tipster has claimed that the Realme X2Pro will be made official by mid-October.
