There has been new of OPPO going for a sub-brand called Realme, perhaps as a measure to square off with the likes of another brand which offer devices with very good specs at extremely attractive price points. Now, the first Realme device, the Realme 1 is officially out, and everything about it just confirms that theory.

The OPPO Realme 1 has a 6-inch FHD+ display, and runs on no less than the same Helio P60 chip that you’ll find in the F7. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. For optics, the device has a 13MP rear camera, along with an 8MP front snapper, capable of facial recognition and AI-assisted beautification.

So you may be wondering, what’s the catch? well, there’s no trace of a fingerprint sensor for one. It runs on OPPO’s ColorOS 5 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, and packs a 3,410mAh battery.

Now for the most interesting part, the price. The 3GB/32GB variant of the OPPO Realme 1 will retail for around $135, while a more premium 6GB + 128GB variant will be sold for around $205. Both will be sold exclusively on Amazon India, for now.
