Moving forward, the company is also said to bring 5G capabilities under Rs 10,000 in India 一 which will set a record when the phone launches. As of today, Realme’s C series smartphones are the ones priced under Rs 10,000 in and we expect the coming generation of Realme C series or in fact, some other new series phones under Rs 10,000 to pack in 5G.
