Last week, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth had revealed that the prices of Realme phones would go up after Diwali because rupee rates are falling. Soon after the festive season was over, the prices of the Realme C1 and Realme 2 increase. The Realme C1 now costs Rs 1,000 more, while the price of Realme 2 hiked to Rs 9499 from Rs 8,990. Some reports claimed that the price of the Realme 2 Pro, which is, so far, one of the best phones Realme has launched in the Indian market, will also go up. But the Realme CEO denies the reports and says that the price of the Realme 2 Pro will not hike. This means interested buyers can grab the Realme 2 Pro for the same launch price of Rs 13,999.
Sheth took to Twitter to announce the price hike news of the Realme phones last week. In the post, he wrote, “The rupee rates are falling, and as a brand, we actually work on low margins. It indicates that we might have to upgrade the pricing, just to make sure that we continue to give you the best technology in our upcoming offerings. We are trying to figure out a solution post-Diwali.” But now, Sheth yet again took to the social media platform to announce that the price of the Realme 2 Pro will not be raised.
Realme 2 Pro Price Will Not Be Hiked
Realme launched the Realme 2 Pro in three models. The base model of the Realme 2 Pro comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage and is priced Rs 13,990, while the 6GB variant of the phone comes for Rs 15,990 and the top-end variant with 8GB/ 128GB of internal storage model is priced at Rs 17,990. Overall, Realme 2 Pro is one of the best phones that you can get at this price segment in India right now. After the price hike announcement, many thought that the sales of the Realme 2 Pro could be affected. But, that’s not happening anymore. Meanwhile, the price of the Realme 2 and the budget-friendly Realme C1 has been increased by around Rs 1,000.
