As per fresh details coming in, Realme’s latest budget flagship: Realme X will very soon launch in India, and its expected price will be Rs 18000.
This has been confirmed by none other than Madhav Sheth, who is the Realme India head.
This way, Realme X will directly compete against the likes of Redmi Note 7 Pro and Poco F1, both from the family of Xiaomi’s sub-brands and the current champions of budget niche smartphones.
Realme X was launched in China last week, and there, it has been priced at Rs 15000 (approximately) for the base variant.
Hence, in India, Realme X would be slightly costly.

As per Madhav Sheth, Realme India Head, the price of Realme X in India will be Rs 18,000, but there is a catch.

By declaring that the price of Realme X will be Rs 18,000, Madhav Sheth has triggered a new battle for the sub-Rs 20,000 niche smartphone market.
As of now, Redmi’s Redmi Note 7 Pro and Poco F1 are the best selling smartphones under Rs 20,000, and Realme X India edition will directly challenge them.

This way, Realme has planned to use Realme X in a very aggresive manner.
