As expected, the Realme 2 from Oppo off-hot – RealMe went on sale today since it was first announced a while ago. Realme says the response it received was mind-boggling as it completely emptied available stock in just about 5 minutes.
While most brands won’t reveal what exact number it sold, the Oppo off shot brand says it sold over 200,000 units in just 5 minutes during its first flash sale. The Realme 2 price in India is pegged at INR8,990 ($130/€110), and that obviously accounts for the record sales volume. The device is tipped to go on sale again in the country via Flipkartcome next week September 11, 2018.
