Realme Narzo 10, Realme Narzo 10A price in India
As the Realme Narzo series is yet to be launched on March 26, the pricing for the same has not been revealed as of now. However, it is expected that the Realme Narzo 10 will be priced under ₹15,000. It is also speculated to be a rebranded version of the Realme 6i that recently debuted in Myanmar. As far as the pricing of the Realme 6i is concerned, the base variant with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage was launched at MMK 249,900 (roughly ₹13,300). The 4GB RAM version with 128GB storage of the Realme 6i is priced at MMK 299,900 (around ₹16,000).
On the other hand, the lighter version of the Realme Narzo 10, the Narzo 10A, is likely to be a rebranded Realme C3 that was recently unveiled in Thailand but with different specifications than what it sported in India. If the reports fall in line, then the Realme Narzo 10A price would turn out to be THB 3,999 (roughly ₹9,200) for the lone 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model.
If both the Realme Narzo 10 and the Realme Narzo 10A turn out to be the rebranded versions of the Realme 6i and Realme C3 (Thai version), respectively, one question would arise – Was the new lineup really needed?
