Chinese smartphone maker Realme may be planning to bring its Realme Q2 smartphone to India soon. While the company itself has not provided any details about the Realme Q2 smartphone, it has reportedly appeared on a Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification listing recently, hinting at an imminent launch in the country. The Realme Q2 was launched in China in October alongside the Realme Q2 Pro and the Realme Q2i. The smartphone is also available in the UK as the Realme 7 5G. The Realme Q2 comes powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 800U chipset with 5G support.
The recent BIS listing of the purported Realme Q2 smartphone was spotted by known Indian tipster Mukul Sharma who goes by the name @Stufflistings on Twitter. Sharma tweeted an image of the BIS listing on Twitter. The listing shows a smartphone with model number RMX2117, which has been associated with the Realme Q2 in the past. While there is no word from Realme about the availability of the smartphone in India, in China it was launch at a price of CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs 14,600) for the base 4GB RAM + 128GB storage variant and CNY 1,399 (roughly Rs 15,800) for the 6GB RAM variant with 128GB storage. It is being reported that the India pricing will be close to the Realme Q2’s price in China.
