The X2 is a phone rumored to be a modified version of the XT, Realme's first 64MP camera phone. A new device from the same brand has appeared on Geekbench 4. Based on its model number, it may be the X2; however, the SoC information in these benchmarking results contradicts some recent leaks.

Realme has announced that it will launch the X2 tomorrow (September 24, 2019). It is thought to be a variant of the pre-existing XT for the Chinese market. If so, this will be the brand's first phone with the 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 camera sensor released to this region. However, its specs may have been spoiled through benchmarking already.

The XT is powered by the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 712; however, the X2 has been rumored to ship with the newer 730G processor from the same company. Unfortunately, this is not borne out in a new Geekbench 4 listing for what is probably the newer device. This set of results is for a "realme RMX1991" (which, as the XT is also known as the RMX1921, checks out to an appreciable degree), which has an "sm6150" as its CPU.

This code-name typically corresponds to the Snapdragon 675 processor, which, while also a mid-range chipset, may not have the hype factor of the 730G. The RMX1991 also exhibits 8GB of RAM and runs Android 9 (which will probably be skinned by Color OS 6).

Nevertheless, the apparent presence of the 675 may prove disappointing for some Realme fans. Then again, one or two tech bloggers contend that the Geekbench SoC-designation process has been wrong in the past, and may thus be inaccurate in this case as well.
