Realme X will launch in India later this year, CEO reveals price

Peter, 29 May 2019

The sixth episode of the #AskMadhav Q&A show is up and it has some good news: the Realme X will launch in India in the second half of this year.

The brand’s Indian CEO Madhav Sheth even gave a pretty narrow price range for the phone – INR 18,000 to INR 20,000. That’s slightly higher than the price in China (which works out to INR 15,000).

The team is still considering what specs will be best for that market (presumably this refers to the RAM and storage configuration). That will determine the final price.

Sheth also mentions the Realme 3 Pro (which was renamed to “X Lite” in China). It’s currently available in India starting at INR 14,000. The two phones have different feature sets and price points so they won’t compete against one another. You can hear more about the X vs. 3 Pro at around the 4:50 mark.

Watch the full Q&A session below:

By the way, the CEO also revealed that the 3 Pro will get the theme store by June. Older Realme phones will get it with the Color OS 6 update, which is based on Android 9 Pie. The brand is also working on “Realme OS”, but details are still under wraps.

PS. Sheth is answering fan questions, so if you have burning questions, you can tweet them with the #AskMadhav hashtag.
