Realme Q2i

Realme Q2i Specifications:

The Realme Q2i comes with a 6.52 inch IPS LCD with a waterdrop-style notch. It has an HD+ panel with an aspect ratio of 20:9. The processor we get here is the new MediaTek Dimensity 720 MT6853V chipset, which is a 5G-ready chip, and much like the other Dimensity processors, it delivers high performance. It is an octa-core processor with dual Cortex A76 high-performance cores and six Cortex A55 power-efficient cores. All this is backed up by 4GB of RAM, which takes care of all the multitasking.

On the rear side of the device, we get a triple camera setup consisting of a 13MP primary shooter with an f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. And on the front side in the waterdrop notch, we get an 8 MP front camera for shooting selfies.

Powering it all up is a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. And in terms of internal storage, we get 128GB along with support for microSD expansion of up to 256GB. There is also a fingerprint sensor placed on the rear side of the device. It does support 5G along with support for 4G VoLTE. But most markets don’t yet have the 5G infrastructure, so it does not make much of a difference. However, you will be future-proof for when it finally happens. It will be available in two color variants, and rumors suggest that we will see this phone in the first month of 2021 at a price tag of nearly 10,000 INR.
