Realme 2 Pro

The more powerful version of the Realme 2, the Realme 2 Pro has officially launched and brings forth numerous upgrades for the average buyer both in terms of design as well as hardware specifications.

The top-tier version is well-built and affordable too, with the highest specifications ranging up to 8GB of RAM, a 3500mAh battery capacity and 128GB of onboard memory.

The starting price of the Realme 2 Pro is Rs. 13,990 but to get the best specifications possible, you will need to spend a little more money. Luckily, here’s the best part; purchasing the 8GB RAM version with 128GB of internal storage will only cost you Rs. 17,990 and that is a terrific steal of a deal.

Vivo V9 Pro

The Vivo V9 Pro is an upgraded version of the original and it comes with powerful hardware specifications. The increased performance that you will be getting in return for your hard-earned money is thanks to the 6GB of RAM as well as a powerful Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset.

The Snapdragon 660 AIE might not be as powerful as the Snapdragon 845, but it can hold its own very well, which is why it holds a special place in the heart of phone manufacturers that continue to launch mid-range handsets in markets like India.

It will also feature a 13MP+2MP dual-camera at the back, and all of these impressive specifications are going to be clad around a beautiful and premium aluminium chassis. The smartphone is going to go on sale on the 26th of September, so you can start making your decision right now.
