Now, Flipkart has confirmed that it will have dibs on the smartphone and will be offering the device exclusively starting August 28. Interestingly, the store puts the handset in a category of its own by saying that it’s the first notched smartphone in India for under INR 10,000 ($140). Now we are not sure anyone is looking for notched smartphones specifically, but that price sure sounds attractive.

As of now, Realme confirmed that the Realme 2 will sport a Snapdragon SoC, 6.2-inch display and a 88.8% screen-to-body ratio. Judging by the striking similarity between the recently leaked Oppo A5X and the Realme 2, the latter could come with Snapdragon 450.

Nevertheless, the Realme 2 offers a handful of upgrades over its predecessor in exchange for a modest price bump – the Realme 1’s launch price was INR 8,990 ($128).
