Realme launched two new smartphones earlier today in China. The company took the wraps off its flagship Realme X phone, and the more affordable Realme X Lite. As is the plan of most smartphone makers this year, Realme too will be launching a 5G smartphone this year. The plan for the Realme 5G smartphone was hinted at by Realme’s Chief Product Officer Derek Wang on the sidelines of the launch event. Not much is known about this upcoming device, except that it will be powered by Qualcomm’s high-end Snapdragon 855 chipset.
Since it will be a Snapdragon 855-powered device, it is expected to offer flagship-level specifications and features. Besides, the Chinese company will also reportedly focus on the offline smartphone market, so that customers can “touch, feel, experience” their products and buy them easily.
Talking about the newly launched Realme smartphones. The Realme X will be available in China with a starting price of RMB 1,499 (approximately Rs 15,300) for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant.
