Xiaomi’s Product PR Yash Garg took to Twitter to announce the company’s plan to discontinue the entry-level Note series smartphone in India.
While Xiaomi has been dominant in the budget smartphone market, Realme’s aggressive pricing and feature-rich C2 is capable of eating a piece of Redmi 7's market share.
The two smartphones join Redmi’s line-up of budget devices that includes the already-launched Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note7 Pro.
The Galaxy A2 Core is the first Samsung device to run on Android 9 Go and is assured of getting software updates every two years.
Redmi India’s official Twitter handle posted a video of Manu Kumar Jain taking selfies with Xiaomi employees.
The budget smartphone comes in 16GB and 32GB storage variants and has been priced Rs Rs 7,990 and Rs 8,490 respectively.
