Realme CEO Madhav Sheth claimed that the brand's latest budget smartphone, the Realme Narzo 10, sold over 70,000 units just two minutes after it was launched. The Mediatek Helio G80 powered device goes head to head with the Redmi Note 9, Vivo U20 and other lower-midrange devices.

Realme CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that over 70,000 units of the Realme Narzo 10 sold in slightly over two minutes. The immensely positive response to the Narzo 10 appears to further cement Realme's presence in the budget market alongside established names like Xiaomi and Honor

Selling at Rs. 11,999 (US$160), the Narzo 10 goes head to head with the Redmi Note 9 and the Vivo U20, among others.

Realme delivers a remarkably robust package at this price point. The Narzo 10 features a Helio G80 chipset  driving an HD+ panel. A 5000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging means that Narzo 10 users shouldn't have trouble getting through the workday. 

In terms of camera capabilities, we're looking at a 48MP quad camera setup here in a vertical array, adjacent to a fingerprint reader.

The Realme Narzo 10 doesn't skimp in terms of software, either. It runs Android 10, albeit with Realme's skin bolted on top. 

With the likes of the Poco X2 delivering unprecedented value in the sub-Rs. 20,000 segment, the Indian smartphone market is heating up fast and the Narzo 10 appears to be yet another midranger delivered at a nominally budget price-point to cater to growing expectations.
