“Only 2,000 units of Realme X and 300 units of the Spider-Man: Far From Home edition will be up for grabs in the Blind Order sale”
Realme X is scheduled to launch in India on July 15th, alongside Realme 3i. Now, ahead of the launch, the Chinese brand announced Realme X Blind Order sale. This ‘sale’ will give fans a chance to pre-book the phone by registering on the company’s official website between 12pm on July 11th and 11:59pm on July 14th. They will have to pay a pre-order amount of Rs 1,000 for the advance booking — however, only 2,000 units of the standard Realme X and just 300 units of the Spider-Man: Far From Home edition will be up for grabs during this Blind Order ‘sale’.
To register for the Realme X Blind Order sale, head over to the Realme website, log in using the Realme ID, fill in the required details and paying the Rs 1,000 deposit. Realme will reportedly be topping up your account by Rs 500 on its own, bringing down the handset’s effective price. This advance order will guarantee that the early birds will be able to purchase a unit regardless of the rush for the new smartphone. The handset will go on sale on July 22nd, and the remaining amount will have to be paid between 12pm on July 22nd and 11:59pm on July 26th. We will have to wait for the launch event on July 15th to find out the Realme X price in India, though we do know it will cost less than Rs 18,000.
Those who pre-book the handset will also have the option to cancel the Realme X Blind Order. They will need to cancel the order before 12pm on 22nd July and their deposit will be refunded automatically on July 27th.
