Realme this week launched its flagship phone called the Realme x smartphone in China for a starting price of CNY 1,490, which is roughly Rs 14,900. Now, the company announced that it will also launch the device in India. Now new information about the device has come to light for its launch in India.
In a tweet from the CEO of Realme India, Madhav Sheth said that the company will launch the Realme X with different specifications in India. He also said that the price of the device in the country will be around Rs 18,000.
#realmeX may not necessarily launch in the same specs in India.
We are planning to have a #realmeXIndian version and prices maybe around 18k.
Apart from garlic and onion,
We will also have one more special variant for India RT and Guess?

He also suggested that apart from the Garlic and Onion color variants of the device, there will also be a variant specific to the Indian market.
The roughly Rs 18,000 price shared by Madhav is roughly the same for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant released in China.
The Realme X has a 6.5-inch FHD + OLED display with minimal bezels and a pop-up selfie camera. Taking more cues from its competition, the Realme X also gets an in-display fingerprint scanner that turns out to be another first on a Realme smartphone.
On the inside, we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset that powers the phone along with the option of an 8GB RAM variant for those who want to multitask.
The Realme X gets a 48 MP Sony IMX586 primary camera sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor, a setup we first saw at the Redmi Note 7 Pro (review) Y most recently the OnePlus 7. The pop-up camera, meanwhile, will likely have a 16 MP sensor.
The X also gets a fairly large 3,680 mAh battery along with support for VOOC 3.0 fast charging. The phone runs ColorOS 6.0 based on Android Pie and will be available in two interesting colors: gradient blue and white.
