Tipster Abhishek Yadav separately tweeted that the Realme Narzo 40 series has been cancelled. This means the Narzo 50 series will succeed the Narzo 30 series.

Historically, the number 4 is considered bad luck in China, which is probably why Chinese companies like Realme and OnePlus have avoided the number. Realme never launched the Realme 4 series or the X4 series, while OnePlus jumped from the OnePlus 3 series to the OnePlus 5 series. The fear of number 4 is called Tetraphobia.

Separately, Realme is set to launch the Realme C21Y in India on Monday, August 23rd. The phone is a minor upgrade over the Realme C21. The handset features a 6.5-inch display and a 5,000mAh battery. It is powered by the Unisoc T610 processor and the phone comes equipped with a 13MP triple camera system. The Realme C21Y will be available in Cross Black and Cross Blue colour options.
