Realme X2 Pro has been launched in China, a face-off for the mighty Redmi K20 Pro. Since the launch of Poco, Xiaomi has been dominating the budget flagship segment in India for sure. Oneplus, which started this category, moved on and entered the premium flagship belt. Although Poco failed to launch a Pocophone F2 for whatsoever reason despite having one of the best sales graphs. Xiaomi banged the market with Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro series. Initially, market expectation made K20 seemed overpriced, although K20 Pro was always the champ in 2019. But now, everything’s headed in a different direction with Realme gripping roots in the game. Realme X2 Pro is Realme’s 1st attempt to face Redmi K20 Pro.
