Last week saw the launch of Realme X flagship smartphone at an event that the Chinese smartphone maker held in its home country. Once the handset was launched, Realme confirmed that it will soon be launching it in India too. As of now, the smartphone maker has not announced a particular date when the Realme X will come to India, however, the company’s CEO Madhav Sheth has given a very key detail about its launch.
In a Twitter post, Sheth has revealed that the although the company plans to launch its Realme X smartphone in India, the variant that will be launched in the country “might not” even have the same set of specifications as the model that was was unveiled in China. However, he has not said anything about how the two smartphone models will be different from each other.
But Sheth did say that the Realme X smartphone will be priced at Rs 18,000 in India. It is being speculated that this price will be meant for the topmost variant of the smartphone that will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and the base model is expected to be more affordable. In addition to this, it has also been confirmed by Sheth that the Onions and Garlics variants of the Realme X will also be coming to India. But as mentioned earlier, we don’t know when the device will be launched.
#realmeX may not necessarily launch at the same specs in India.
We are planning to have an #realmeXIndian version and
pricing maybe around 18k.
Apart from Garlic and Onion, 😊
we will also have one more special variant for India.👍
RT and Guess?
