Oppo spin-off brand Realme launched the Realme XT phone in India on Friday at a starting price of Rs 15,999. The Realme XT is a lower mid-tier phone which packs a Super AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint scanner, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor paired with up to 8GB RAM, and 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging.
