Realme X won’t launch in India until second half of the year, confirms Madhav Sheth

“Realme X comes with 6.5-inch AMOLED notch-less display, 48-megapixel sensor, and runs on Android 9.0 Pie”

Realme India head Madhav Sheth has already confirmed that Realme X (first impressions), which debuted in China earlier this month, would be launching in India with different internals soon with pricing around Rs 18,000. However, the launch timeline wasn’t revealed. Now, in the latest development, replying to a user Tweet, Sheth clarified that the handset would launch in the country around “second half of this year,” meaning sometime between July to December. Unfortunately, this isn’t good news for users who’ve been waiting eagerly for the handset, but we hope it’s worth the wait.
