Realme 1 is the first smartphone from Oppo’s sub-brand Realme, which is an online-only brand introduced to take on the likes of Xiaomi Redmi lineup in India. Realme is holding the second sale of the smartphone today exclusively through Amazon at 12 PM. And yes, it will be a flash sale because of the demand for the smartphone super high, thanks to the specifications it offers at an affordable price point. Furthermore, to lure more users, Realme has confirmed the device will receive Android P in the future. At the moment, the phone is running on Oppo’s custom UI skin ColorOS based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The confirmation of Android P comes as good news for users, but it will still be based on ColorOS, which is one of the bad skins out there. In today’s sale, Realme will be selling only the 3GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants. The 4GB RAM variant is yet to be made available for purchase and it might happen in the second week of June.
For the unknown, the 3GB RAM+32GB storage variant of the Realme 1 is priced at just Rs 8,990, whereas the 6GB RAM+128GB storage option costs Rs 13,990. That’s the lowest price for a smartphone with 6GB of RAM. The 4GB RAM variant with 64GB of internal storage comes at a price of Rs 10,990.
The device will be exclusively available only on Amazon India. The highlight of the Realme 1 is its design, which has a Diamond Cut back. Even though the device is entirely constructed out of plastic, the Diamond Cut back is very attractive and unique when compared to the metal-clad smartphones.
Launch offers on Amazon include benefits of up to Rs 4,850 from Reliance Jio, 80% discount on first Kindle eBooks and No Cost EMI for 6 months.
