After teasing it yesterday, Amazon India and Oppo have officially announced the launch of their new smartphone brand, dubbed as Realme. The first phone from the new brand will be called as Realme 1 and it will be launched on May 15. The new teaser reveals Black Diamond version of the phone with triangular-cut patterns.
Earlier, last week Oppo had introduced the A3 with Diamond patterns on the back, and the Realme 1 comes with a similar design with shimmer bright and dark shades when seen from different angles. Amazon and Oppo haven’t yet revealed any details about the price and specifications of the upcoming Realme 1.
If we talk about the Oppo A3, it was introduced for 1999 yuan (Rs. 21,020 approx.), but the Realme 1 might be cheaper since the company is comparing the phone with the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, and even the name Realme sounds like Redmi.
Realme 1 Features
Amazon India’s page for Realme 1 reveals some of its key features. Amazon India and Oppo are set to target the Indian youth with the upcoming phone. The handset is likely to feature a metallic frame and a shiny back panel with triangular-cut, diamond patterns. This unique back panel has been compared with a simple metallic back that looks like Redmi 5A.
The Realme 1 has a rear-facing camera sensor with an LED flash. The new smartphone will also come with after sales support directly from Oppo that is said to have over 500 authorized service centers in India. Moreover, as mentioned above, the new phone is likely to be a cheaper version of the Oppo A3. It is supposed to come with features like ColorOS 5.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, and Full-Screen display among other things.
We should know the detailed specs and pricing of the device in some time.
“Realme satisfies the needs of online consumers through unique, exquisite design, leading specs, cutting-edge technology and overall better quality,” said, CEO, Realme India.
