Realme CEO takes a jab at Redmi 7A, calls Realme C2 ‘Desh ka Real Choice’


Just after the Redmi 7A launch in the country, Realme India CEO took it to Twitter to compare Realme C2 with ‘Smartphone A’ in a couple of tweets and referred to Realme C2 as ‘Desh ka Real Choice’ which was launched back in April. The specifications of the ‘Smartphone A’ in Madhav’s tweets resemble that of Redmi 7A, which Xiaomi is promoting as ‘Smart Desh ka Smartphone’.

Check out the tweets below,

This is not the first incident when such comparisons are made between Realme and Redmi products, before the Realme 3 Pro launch back in April, Madhav posted a tweet regarding the inability of a Pro device to run Fortnite, which was indeed Redmi Note 7 Pro.

A few days later Xiaomi India MD, Manu Kumar Jain tweeted with Antutu scores of Snapdragon 675 and Snapdragon 710 and said Snapdragon 710 is a one-year-old processor. At the same time, Redmi India worked with Epic games team and released an OTA to bring Fortnite support to Redmi Note 7 Pro.

The story did not end there and since then, Manu can be often seen tweeting about the Snapdragon 710. A couple of times he referred to Snapdragon 710 as a new Snapdragon 625, to remind Snapdragon 625 is almost a 3-year-old processor which Xiaomi used in multiple devices released in 2017-18.

Realme and Redmi are all set to launch their latest offerings Realme X and Redmi K20, K20 Pro in the country this month, Realme X launch event is scheduled for July 15th. Xiaomi is organizing Mi Pop on July 17th, and we can expect the company to launch Redmi K20 series around that. Realme X sports Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, Realme India CEO Madhav had hinted towards some specification change for the Indian variant back in May, but we hear that they will likely stick to Snapdragon 710 SoC.

Realme has already announced that it is bringing Realme X Spiderman Edition to India and it would be interesting to see if Xiaomi will bring recently unveiled Redmi K20 Pro Avengers Edition to the country. The smartphone companies and officials may take a few swings on each other but such competition is always good for end consumers, as it leads to the development of great products.
