Although Chinese smartphone maker Realme has already launched the Realme X in China, but it is not available in India yet. The Realme X was launched earlier this week in China and it is powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC. But now, the CEO of Realme India, Madhav Sheth has announced that the Realme X will be launching in India as well. However, he didn’t reveal the exact date of the launch or the venue. Other than the Realme X, another smartphone was launched alongside it, the Realme X Youth Edition which is just a rebranded version of Realme 3 Pro. The Realme X is the first smartphone from the company which features a pop-up selfie camera.
Realme X price and availability (expected)
Realme X’s price in India is currently unknown. But in China, the device’s 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant is priced at CNY 1,499 (approximately Rs 15,400) while the 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage is priced at CNY 1,599 (approximately Rs 16,400). The top-end variant of the Realme X with 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage holds a price tag of CNY 1,799 (approximately Rs 18,500).
