Realme 1 with 6-inch 18:9 display, Helio P60 SoC and up to 6 GB RAM goes on sale in India

Earlier last week, OPPO’s online-only sub-brand Realme made its debut in India with the launch of the Realme 1 smartphone. With the Realme 1, Realme (or should we say OPPO?) is competing with Xiaomi’s Redmi series smartphones. The Realme 1 is priced starting at ₹8990, and, starting today, the smartphone is available for purchase in the country.


The Realme 1 will be sold exclusively through Amazon in India, and, it will be available for purchase starting today from 12 pm onwards. The Realme 1 is actually a re-branded OPPO A3 which was launched in China late last month. But, there are some differences between both the smartphones.


Having said that, the Realme 1 sports a 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1080 pixels. And, unlike the OPPO A3, the Realme 1 doesn’t come with a notch. However, the back of the Realme 1 looks similar to that of OPPO A3, especially the Diamond Black variant which is covered with glass and polygonal design patterns that actually reminds one of a diamond.

Speaking about the innards, the Realme 1 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60 SoC which is paired with 3, 4 and 6 GB RAM. The 3 GB RAM variant comes with 32 GB internal storage, whereas, the 4 and 6 GB RAM variants come with 64 and 128 GB storage respectively. That said, only the 3 GB and 6 GB RAM variants will go on sale in India starting today. The 4 GB RAM variant will be available later on.
