Oppo's sub-brand Realme will be conducting the second sale of Realme 2. The device first went on sale last week and according to the company, it was received extremely well. Realme claimed to have sold over 2,00,000 smartphone units in just five minutes. Later, BusinessToday.In reported that there were numerous buyers who were facing issues with the order.
Many users had taken to Twitter to complain that their order was being canceled for no apparent reason. Flipkart responded by saying that the cancellation was done due to a policy of the seller. Realme, however, was prompt to respond to the complaints on the platform and promised the complainants that the issue will be taken care of.
Realme 2 will be going on sale for the second time today on Flipkart at 12 pm. The device has managed to introduce first-in-segment features with the new phone at an appealing price starting at Rs 8,990.
The Realme 2 will be sold in two variants one with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. This variant is selling at Rs 8,990 after a special discount of Rs 1000. The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant is also selling with the same discount at Rs 10,990.

The device comes with a 6.2-inch display with a notch on top and 19:9 aspect ratio. The company claims a screen to body ratio of 88.8 per cent.
