Released back in October 2019, the Realme X2 Pro remains one of the more capable all-round devices we have today. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chip and pairs that with 6-12GB RAM for an impeccable Android experience, even in 2020.

At launch, the Realme X2 Pro ran Android 9.0 out of the box and has since been updated to Android 10 with Realme UI. Since then, the device has been pretty frequently updated, most recently being in late July when the device got an update that among other things, fixed both the dark mode interface display issue and the low minimum volume on Bluetooth headsets.
