The Realme 6i finally has an Indian release date. It will be unveiled on July 24 via an online event. The phone is expected to feature a 90Hz screen, a MediaTek Helio G90T SoC, and a quad-camera setup. Prices are expected to start at INR 11,999 (US$160).

Realme and Xiaomi have been at loggerheads ever since the former made its debut in the Indian market last year. Both companies have released a barrage of affordable products over the past few months, very often within days of each other. It is also common practice for one company to compare its product against a rival's similarly-priced offering.

Realme is all set to release the Realme 6i in India on July 24, according to a Tweet by the company's CEO. The phone is touted to be Realme's answer to the newly-released Redmi Note 9. Its initial July 16 release likely got pushed back to coincide with Xiaomi's big Redmi Note 9 reveal. The Realme 6 Pro is expected to come with a MediaTek Helio G90T, which, incidentally, also happens to power last year's Redmi Note 8 Pro. While it may be an older chip, it outperforms the Redmi Note 9's MediaTek Helio G85 convincingly. Furthermore, the Realme 6i will come with a 90Hz FHD+ panel and a quad-camera array as well.

An earlier teaser told us that the Realme 6i would retail for 'less than INR 15,000 (US$200). Considering that the phone is meant to compete with the INR 11,999 (US$160) Redmi Note 9 Pro, we can expect it to retail for around that much. The Realme 6i also has the chops to take on Xiaomi's more 'premium' Redmi Note 9 Pro, which retails at INR 13,999 (US$187).

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
