Madhav Sheth, Head of Realme India has already confirmed that the company’s Realme X smartphone will get launched in India but with different specifications. Now, he has confirmed that the phone will not debut in the Indian market until the second half of this year.
We shall try to bring it earlier but with all our effort we think we shall be only able to bring around second half of the year.

On Twitter, replying to a user, Sheth clarified that the handset would launch in the country around “second half of this year,” meaning sometime between July to December. This isn’t good news for users who’ve been waiting eagerly for the handset.
Realme X, which launched in China earlier this month, features a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display offering 2340 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Thanks to the no-notch design, it offers a 91.2 percent screen-to-body ratio.

Coming to the camera department, the smartphone features a dual camera setup on the back side, consisting of a 48 MP primary sensor and a 5 MP secondary sensor. On the front side, the phone comes equipped with a 16 MP pop-up camera.
As for the connectivity options, the phone comes with support for Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS. It runs ColorOS 6 UI based on Android 9 Pie and is powered by 3765 mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging support.
