Realme X2 Pro has gone up for its "Blind Order" sale in India today. The sale, which is taking place through the Realme India website, will bring the chance for customers to book the Realme X2 Pro in advance. Also, it is taking place ahead of the formal launch of the Realme X2 Pro that is scheduled for Wednesday, November 20. The new Realme smartphone is designed to take on the likes of the Redmi K20 Pro and OnePlus 7T with its high-end specifications that include the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC and up to 12GB of RAM.
As per the listing on the Realme India website, the Blind Order sale will give the first 855 customers the chance to purchase the Realme X2 Pro in advance. Customers will have to pay Rs. 1,000 as deposit, while rest of the amount will be paid between November 20-21 -- likely to be following the Realme X2 Pro launch in the country. The company also notes that after the balance is cleared, it will dispatch the order. The sale is now on.
