Realme is going to have a busy July 15, so it seems. If the Realme X and its many variants weren’t enough, the company has now confirmed that it will also launch a phone called the Realme 3i in India on July 15. The Realme 3i seems to be a toned-down Realme 3 – and a teaser page for the phone that has gone live on the Flipkart mobile app confirms that Realme is once again going back to its tried and tested diamond-cut design, after having dropped it in the Realme 3.
Even though the Realme 1 and Realme 2’s diamond-cut design had become a signature for the company, Realme opted to shake things up quite a bit with the Realme 3 – the phone features a unibody design with a gradient back. The Realme 3i is going to change that. Also, the Realme 3i will be available in two colours – red and blue. There will also be dual cameras and a conventional fingerprint scanner on the back, to complete the package.
Realme recently launched the Realme C2 with similar diamond-cut design and looks like the Realme 3i will slot right between it and the Realme 3, ramping up Realme’s budget portfolio quite a bit.
The Realme 3 sells in India at a starting price of Rs 8,999 for the base variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, going all the way to Rs 10,999 for the top-end variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The Realme C2 meanwhile sells at a starting price of Rs 5,999 for the base version with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, going all the way to Rs 7,999 for the top-end version with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage.
The real star of the show on D-day will be the Realme X though. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the company will be also bringing the "Garlic" and "Onion" Master Editions of the Realme X to India – in addition to the standard blue and white. Realme will also announce the price and availability of the limited Spider-Man Far From Home edition Realme X for the Indian market on July 15.
