Oppo's subsidiary Realme unveiled the company's first ever smartphone Realme 1 in Gurugram, India on May 15.
Currently, only the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant will go on sale in India in the first sale, which will take place on May 25th at 12:00 pm on Amazon India. The e-commerce platform already has a dedicated page live for the same.
The dual-SIM Realme 1 runs ColorOS 5.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, complete with an India-specific theme.
Like OPPO's mid-range phones, the Realme 1 features the company's AI-assisted selfie mode, which analyzes your facial features and fixes any blemishes.
The base model of this phone comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space at Rs 8990, while there's even a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant which will be sold at Rs 10999.
The company is selling the device with something called a diamond back which they claim is a strong departure from the bland design language that is prevalent with the competition. The 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant is priced at Rs. 8,990 while the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant is priced at Rs. 13,990.
The Realme 1 is powered by Mediatek's Helio P60 NeuroPilot AI technology which renders different camera-focused additions like real-time beautification and more.
The staggering success brands like Xiaomi and OnePlus have garnered by being an online-only brand has changed the Indian smartphone landscape, with Xiaomi gobbling up 31% of the market share, while OnePlus dominates the premium tier.
The Realme 1 features a 6-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels coupled with 84.75 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Redmi Note 5, on the other hand, has a 12MP primary camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP secondary camera with beautify 3.0 software. While the rest of the specifications look great for a phone in this category, the Realme 1 misses out on a fingerprint sensor. This feature will learn the usage pattern and the user habits over time. Coming to the launch offers, the Realme 1 comes bundled with benefits worth Rs 4,850 from Reliance Jio, while Amazon India is offering no-cost EMI option. Moreover, you can also make use of AR stickers not only for the rear but also for the front camera. Also, the ColorOS 5.0 comes with a slew of security features, app clones and more.
