The smartphone comes in two variants, one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, which is priced at Rs 8,990, and the other one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB storage which is priced at Rs 10,990. One of the highlights of the device is its massive battery of 4,230 mAh.
After the first sale though, many people on Twitter complained that their orders placed via Flipkart were cancelled. While Realme tried to address each issue specifically, there is no proof if there was proper redressal.

Also, there is no way to confirm that the company really sold those 3,70,000 units considering that the competition in the phone segment is rising and Xiaomi's Redmi 6 Pro appears to be a promising device. Redmi 6 Pro was launched a few days back and went on sale today for the first time. Head here to read the review of the Redmi 6 Pro.
