The Realme smartphone has been rumoured to launch in India with an upgraded Snapdragon 730 to challenge Redmi K20.
Realme X starts at around Rs 15,500 (converted) in China. With the upgraded processor, the prices of both the smartphones would compliment each other and will be available starting at a price at around 18,000 rupees or more.
Realme India CEO Madhav Seth confirmed that Realme X will launch in the country in the mid-year, sometime in July with different specs. This directly hints at an upgraded processor, as the company was previously reported to be working on a smartphone with the newly launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor.
