Realme is gearing up to launch two more affordable smartphones under C series in India soon. Realme India CEO, Madhav Sheth has confirmed the price segment of the upcoming budget devices.
The devices will be unveiled in India on August 18 and the event will be streamed on YouTube. In a tweet, Madhav said that Realme will have multiple C series smartphones every year. As of now, Realme launched its latest C series device, the C11 priced at Rs 7,499. With Realme C12 and Realme C15 teased and confirmed to launch in India soon, the Realme will try to dominate the sub Rs 10,000 market with its news offering.
Since the Realme C11 falls under the sub Rs 8,000 price bracket, we could see the Realme C12 and C15 under Rs 10,000 and compete with the likes of the Redmi 9 Prime. In the latest Ask Madhav episode, he also confirmed that the C series will have multiple smartphones with Rs 1,000 price difference. Also, the Realme C12 does not necessarily mean the successor to the Realme C11.
