Realme U1, the selfie-focused smartphone that was launched late last month, has received up to Rs. 1,500 instant discount in India. The discount will be available through Amazon India between December 21 and January 2. Also, it is valid only on purchases made through HDFC Bank debit and credit card EMI transactions. The new development comes just days after Realme started selling the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant of the Realme U1 through an open sale via Amazon India. It also makes the competition tougher for the Honor 8C that is strongly competing against the latest Realme handset.
