Realme made its big entrance in the market of smartwatches last year with the Realme Watch. Then, the company closed the year with a brand new Realme Watch S and Watch S Pro. Now, the company is gearing to launch the second-generation version of the original Realme Watch and it will also include a Pro variant this time around. Evidence has been found recently in the Realme Link App. The new devices will come with the following marketing name – Realme Watch 2 and Realme Watch 2 Pro.
The new strings were first spotted by the Twitter user @the_tech_guy. He has a trustable history of finding interesting info through lines of code. Now, the tipster has found the name of the upcoming smartwatches in the Realme Link app code. The strings clearly mention the arrival of a new vanilla Realme Watch 2 that will come alongside a Realme Watch 2 Pro. Unfortunately, the leak does not bring further information about the new smartwatches.
Of course, if the new smartwatches come as a proper successor to the last year’s smartwatch, then it will include a new set of features, large displays, and cheap price tags. The design may also be refreshed, and we expect an incremental upgrade in the hardware. The Realme Watch 2 Pro may be more appealing with an AMOLED panel instead of an LCD. However, this is based on mere speculation right now.
