Recently, Realme separated from its parent company Oppo. It is now headed by Sky Li (credited with Oppo’s growth from just 3 markets to 31 countries/regions). He claims that the Realme brand is targeted at young people around the globe. Since the Realme 1 features OPPO’s branding, the Realme 2 will be a real test for the brand. We will have to wait and see how it performs in the extremely competitive smartphone market.
To recall, the Oppo Realme 1 sports a 6.0-inch display with full-HD+ resolution. It is powered by a 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor and 3GB/ 4GB/ 6GB RAM. The optics are powered by a 13-megapixel rear camera. The 4G-enabled handset is backed by a 3,410mAh battery under the hood. The Realme 1 was launched at Rs 8,990 (for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant). While the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage model costs Rs 10,990, the 6GB RAM/ 128GB model came with a price tag of Rs 13,990.
