Earlier today in a partnership with Amazon India, OPPO has launched “Realme 1”, the first phone under its new sub-brand “Realme”. The Realme brand targets the Indian youth and focuses on online buyers who buy products through eCommerce channels. The Realme devices are ‘Made in India’ that aim to offer high-quality smartphones in the sub-Rs. 15000 price range. Speaking of Realme 1, it features a diamond black design that resembles the glossy diamond-cut pattern as seen on the Oppo F7 and Oppo A3. However, there is no presence of the notch on Realme 1 unlike the duo offerings from OPPO.
Realme 1 specifications
The Realme 1 features a glossy back and patterns of different sizes that produce a diamond-like effect as the light reflects from different angles. It sports a 6-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a resolution of 2160 by 1080 pixels and a screen-to-body ratio of around 85%.
