The Realme Q series will launch in China on October 13, the same day Apple launches its iPhone 12. The company turned to Weibo to announce the launch date through a cryptic teaser, which does not explicitly tell the specifics of the next series. There will be two models under the Q series: Realme Q2 and Q2 Pro. But there is one thing for sure.
Realme Q2 and Q2 Pro will be the first two smartphones of the brand to be equipped with Android 11 outside the box. They will have the Realme 2.0 UI on top. Realme UI 2.0 was introduced just a few weeks ago when Google launched Android 11. It is available on Realme X50 Pro 5G under the beta channel, which means there will be some bugs for now. But the stable version is expected to launch soon after the Q2 series is launched.
We are not sure about the Realme Q2 series hardware. But we were treated to some of the official renders of one of the phones. There will be a four-camera setup on the back, similar to the Realme X7 or Realme V5. One of the cameras will have a 48-megapixel sensor, according to previous leaks but nothing is set in stone yet. There will be a leather finish on the back of the phone, with Realme’s “Dare to Leap” motto engraved on it.
Realme recently introduced its first special edition phone with vegan skin on the back. It’s called Realme 7 Pro Sun Kissed Leather edition and costs the same as regular models. Perhaps Realme will launch more smartphones with leather finishes after the Q series manages to receive a welcome response in the Chinese market and outside of it should Realme choose to go global with the Q series.
Realme’s Q series will likely have two Q2 and Q2 Pro smartphones launching on the same day as Apple iPhone 12.
