Price of Realme 2 Pro is same but we expect it to be more expensive after Diwali. Realme 2 Pro is one of the best selling phones of its segment and the company sold over a million units during the Big Billion days held in the second week of November. So, people who are thinking to buy this phone should buy it before Diwali.
Realme began as an online-only brand under Oppo and is now operates as a separate entity. Now the company has also partnered with Reliance to sell the phones offline from Reliance Digital and Digital Xpress mini stores. All of their smartphones have been priced aggressively to compete against Xiaomi that is ruling the entry-level and lower mid-range segment. Realme also got success in getting considerable consumers.
After the fall of Indian currency against the Dollar, it has become really tough for several smartphone brands who are selling products on a aggressive pricing. Xiaomi increased the prices of its Redmi Note 5 Pro and Mi LED TV 4 back in April this year. Xiomi also confirms that it might increase the price of Redmi 6 series of smartphones in Indian Rupees continues to fall.
