After confirming that the phone will be launched in India soon, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has now confirmed the pricing of the Realme X when it gets released in the country. The Realme X will be available for a price of around Rs 18,000, which will put the phone in direct competition with Samsung Galaxy A50, Xiaomi Poco F1 and Huawei P30 Lite.
Through a tweet from his official Twitter handle, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that Realme X in India will have different specifications in contrast to the Realme X which was launched in China last week. This phone will thus differ from the original Realme X and Realme X Indian, as Sheth called it, will come for a price of around Rs 18,000.
In the same tweet, Sheth also disclosed that the Realme X in India will come in an additional Special coloured variant in addition to the original Garlic and Onion colours.
For Rs 18,000, the Realme X that will be available in India matches the price of the Realme X in 8GB + 128GB configuration that was released in China for Yuan 1799 (approx. Rs 18,500).
To recall, the original Realme X released in China featured a 6.5-inch Full HD+ Samsung’s AMOLED full-screen display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, paired with up to 8GB of RAM. Realme X runs on Android 9 Pie operating system based on ColorOS 6.0 UI and it is backed up by a 3765mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 support.
On the camera front, the phone sports an AI dual rear camera setup with 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 as primary sensor and 5-megapixel as secondary sensors along with an LED flash. The phone has a pop-up selfie camera of 16-megapixel with f/2.0 aperture. There’s an in-display next-generation light-sensitive screen fingerprint sensor and support for Dolby Atmos surround sound.
