Highlights of the Story

  • Realme C2 and Realme C3 saw a price hike of Rs. 500 to all the variants.
  • The updated prices can be seen on Flipkart and realme.com.
  • Xiaomi too has hiked the prices of the Redmi 8, Redmi 8A and Redmi Note 8.

Almost every other smartphone in India saw a hike in their prices in April due to the increase in GST on smartphones from 12 percent to 18 percent. Not only big brands such as Apple or Samsung, but even smaller manufacturers and budget devices got a pull-up in their prices. And yet again, Realme and Xiaomi have elevated the costs for a few of their entry-level smartphones.

Talking about Realme, the company’s entry level Realme C3, which was priced at Rs 7,499 for the 3GB/32GB variant, is now priced at Rs 7,999 while the top 4GB/64GB model, which was priced Rs 8,499, is now listed at Rs 8,999. On the other hand, its predecessor, the Realme C2 price in India, which started at Rs 6,499 for the 2GB/32GB variant, is now listed for Rs 6,999 in India. These new, hiked pricing can now be seen on Flipkart and realme.com.

The Covid-19 pandemic which led to a nation-wide lockdown has hit adversely on the manufacturing and supply chain of smartphones, which is surely a contributing factor to the increase in prices of even budget devices. This is ironic as it was earlier expected that smartphone brands would be offering some attractive deals in order to boost their product sales post lockdown.
