Realme held two flash sales for its Realme C1 (2019) smartphone last week, and now, the company is hosting another one today for the phone. The Realme C1 (2019) isn't really a new smartphone, but just two additional variants of the Realme C1, which was launched in 2018. The Realme C1 was introduced in the country back in September, priced at Rs. 6,999 for its sole 2GB RAM/ 16GB storage variant. It received a price hike in November, going up to Rs. 7,999. Last month, the company decided to introduce two new RAM + storage variants of the phone in India - 2GB RAM + 32GB storage variant and the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant - both of which went on sale for the first time last week.
The company is now hosting the Realme C1 (2019) third sale in India today. The sale will be held at 12pm (Noon) IST on Flipkart exclusively. The consumers can head over to the Flipkart site to register for the sale notification. The announcement of today's sale was made by Realme on Twitter.
