Realme has launched the top-end variant of the device in China today. As of now, there is no word whether the new variant will hit other markets or not.

The device is already up for pre-orders via the company’s official store, Jingdong Mall, Tmall and Suning. Coming to the pricing, Realme X 256GB is originally priced at CNY 2,099 (roughly USD 297).
