The Realme X2 Pro India launch is confirmed for November 20th, while the Realme XT 730G is slated to launch some time in December. To recall, the Realme XT 730G will essentially be the Realme XT with the Snapdragon 730G processor, 32MP selfie camera, and 30W fast-charging support. Of course, we know all the specifications and features of both the handsets – the Realme X2 Pro was recently launched in China whereas the Realme XT 730G will be a rebranded version of the Realme X2 that is also official. Of course, Realme will be sticking to its affordable roots and keeping prices within striking distance of each other.

This would obviously give users more choice but also create a little bit of confusion in their minds regarding whether they should buy the Realme X2 Pro when it launched in India in November or wait another month for the Realme XT 730G, which will be less expensive. To clear this confusion for you, we compare the specifications and prices of Realme XT 730G and X2 Pro, so scroll down to see all their differences.

Realme XT 730G vs Realme 2 Pro price

In China, the Realme X2 Pro price starts at RMB 2,699 (about Rs 27,000) for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. The prices of the handset’s 8GB + 128GB and 12GB + 256GB variants are RMB 2,899 (roughly Rs 29,000) and RMB 3,299 (approximately Rs 33,000). On the other hand, the Realme XT 730G (X2) prices in the Chinese market are RMB 1,599 (around Rs 16,000) and RMB 1,899 (roughly Rs 19,000) for the 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB variants, respectively.

Realme XT 730G (X2)Realme X2 Pro
6GB + 64GBRMB 1,599 (~Rs 16,000)RMB 2,699 (~Rs 27,000)
8GB + 128GBRMB 1,899 (~Rs 19,000)RMB 2,899 (~Rs 29,000)
12GB + 256GBRMB 3,299 (~Rs 33,000)

Of course, the brand may play around with the prices a little and the phones might cost a little more in India than they do in China. If you recall, the Realme 5 Pro in India is known as Realme Q in China – you can see how big a difference there is between the same phone’s prices in the two countries in the table below:

Realme 5 Pro (India)Realme Q (China)
4GB + 64GBRs 13,999RMB 998 (~Rs 10,000)
6GB + 64GBRs 14,999RMB 1,198 (~Rs 12,000)
8GB + 128GBRs 16,999RMB 1,498 (~Rs 15,000)

So it is entirely possible that the Realme XT 730G price in India might be higher than the China price of the Realme X2. Nonetheless, we can safely assume the price should start around Rs 20,000. As for the Realme X2 Pro, it should cost a shade under Rs 30,000.

There’s your answer. Yes, both devices are great, but the Realme X2 Pro is simply a better deal and worth waiting for. However, the XT 730G will be no slouch either, so if your budget is closer to Rs 20,000, then this is the handset to go for.
