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.

It is probably the first India to adopt the notched device in play at a price point of less than ₹10,000. Unlike the Realme, the device comes fitted with a fear fingerprint sensor, as well as a software-based face unlock.
