Oppo Realme 1 Smartphone to Launch in India Today Under Rs 15,000

Oppo Electronics, the third largest phone brand in India, is set to debut their online-only sub-brand called Realme exclusively on Amazon. The brand will mark a new phase for the company as it looks to take on sub-brands like Honor and Redmi that primarily dominate the budget to mid-range segment. The first smartphone, the Realme 1 will launch in Delhi today, and the event will kick off 12:30 PM IST. The launch will be live streamed on Realme’s YouTube and Facebook pages in the country. Last week, Realme CEO, Madhav Seth confirmed the Realme 1 would be powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM. He said this combined with a good battery backup and ultra-affordable pricing would make the smartphone a formidable rival to Redmi Note 5 Pro and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1.
