The 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants cost ₹10,990 and ₹13,990 respectively. The phone has a dedicated microSD card slot for expandable storage. It ships with ColorOS 5.0 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, and Realme has now revealed that all variants will be updated to Android P in the future. This is a fairly significant announcement.
