Looks like Realme is here to stay: Realme 2 sells 370 000 units in two days

A look at the back of the Realme 2.

Oppo‘s Realme sub-brand has come out of nowhere to make a splash in the Indian market. Now, the company’s second smartphone, the Realme 2, has reportedly sold 370 000 units in just two days.

The news was announced by Realme on Twitter and comes on the back of two flash sales. The company apparently managed to sell 200 000 units during the first sale, which took place last week. The second flash sale took place today (September 11).

It’s clear that the Realme brand has made some headway into the Indian market, then. In fact, at the Realme 2 launch, the company claimed that it has four percent market share in the online sales sector. That doesn’t seem too shabby for a new brand (albeit backed by Oppo) with one phone to its name at the time.

The aforementioned Realme 2 sales suggest that the brand is maintaining momentum in the market. And with reports that the company is investigating offline sales, it seems like the brand is firmly planting its feet in the country.

As for the Realme 2’s spec sheet, we’ve got a Snapdragon 450 chipset, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, a 13MP+2MP dual camera setup, and a 4,230mAh battery. It doesn’t have quite as much processing power as the Realme 1, but at least we’ve got a fingerprint scanner.

The sub-brand used the Realme 2 event to tease a Pro model as well, but it didn’t reveal anything else about this variant. If the top-end Realme 1 is anything to go by, however, we can expect an improved chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of expandable storage.
