Chinese smartphone brand Realme recently launched its flagship smartphone – Realme X – in China. A few days after the device was launched, Realme India’s CEO Madhav Sheath announced that the smartphone will not be coming to India till the second half of 2019. He also said that the Indian version of the smartphone will come with different specifications and features than the model that was launched in China. However, till now, there was no word on the exact launch date of the Realme X smartphone in India. Today, we have learnt from industry insiders that the flagship handset will be launched in India on July 17.
Interestingly, this falls just a day ahead of Redmi K20 Pro’s launch date in India, that is scheduled for July 18. The rivalry between these two companies is nothing new and these launch dates only make it fiercer. In a tweet that he had posted earlier, Sheth had said, “We shall try to bring it [Realme X] earlier, but with all our effort, we think we shall be only able to bring around [the] second half of the year.”
He had also added that the company will be getting the Naoto Fukasawa’s Realme X’s Onion and Garlic finish to the Indian market too. So even though the specifications will be different, the finish of the flagship smartphone will be the same as the Chinese counterparts. The CEO has also said that there will be a special variant of the Realme X that will be launched in India.
Realme X price
In China, the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage model of the Realme X smartphone costs CNY 1,499 (approximately Rs 15,100), and the 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant is priced at CNY 1,599 (approximately Rs 16,100). The 8GB RAM/128GB storage version of the Realme X bears a price tag of CNY 1,799 (approximately Rs 18,100). The price of the smartphone in India is expected to be similar to the Chinese counterparts of the device.
