Chinese smartphone maker Realme on Thursday launched its Realme 6 series smartphones powered by 90Hz “ultra-smooth display” at a starting price of ₹12,999 — in an empty Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the capital as the company took extra precaution and did not call the public owing to the growing coronavirus concerns.

This smartphone, which will be equipped with three-card slots for two SIM cards and one SD card (up to 256GB), will go on sale from March 13, the company said.

Realme 6 Pro is the world’s first smartphone to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G mobile platform and is also equipped with three-card slots.

The Realme 6 Pro features 6 cameras in total, including dual wide angle front cameras and 64MP quad rear camera with 20x hybrid zoom capabilities.
