Realme already announced that the Realme 2 smartphone will be launched on August 28th. Today Flipkart has confirmed that it will be available exclusively with them and also said that it will be one of the first companies to offer a notch screen under Rs. 10,000.
Realme already confirmed 6.2-inch display with 88.8% screen-to-body ratio, Snapdragon SoC, dual rear cameras and a 4230mAh battery.
We had already seen a render of the smartphone that revealed its design. This also revealed a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that the Realme 1 lacked and a glossy back with a symmetrical design, similar to the predecessor.
Recently Flipkart conducted a customer survey the ‘Real Pulse of India’. According to the survey, 58% customers wanted fast performance followed by 18 % wanted better camera and bigger battery respectively. While more than 50% of the millennial considered Notch as a must have as a part of their smartphone design, the others voted for Glass Protection with 29% and FVD with 27%.
Commenting on the upcoming launch of the brand, Madhav Seth, Chief Executive Officer, Realme India, said:
At Realme, ‘Power Meets Style’ will always be our product philosophy, and we constantly strive to provide our consumers with best products and services at a surprising price. We have received an overwhelming customer response for our previous launch and are expecting Realme 2 to take it ‘A Notch Above’ with its design and powerful performance capabilities, in a more budget-friendly segment. We are glad to partner with Flipkart for our next launch and hoping to reach out to a wider set of customers through this platform.
