The flash sales of Realme’s newly launched flagship smartphone Realme 6i at online marketplace Daraz ended in less than two minutes on Monday as 1,000 units of the handset model were sold out within that time.
The sales ended at 2:32pm after starting at 2:30pm on the day.
An official of Realme, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, said that the handset would be available at Daraz within a few days again.
Initially, Realme sold 1,000 units of Realme 6i handset model at Tk 1,000 discount, the official said.
The market price of each Realme 6i handset was set at Tk 16,990 for the country’s local market but the handset was sold at Tk 15,990 in the flash sales.
Apart from Daraz, the handset would be available on the local market at Tk 16,990.
In March this year, the flash sales of Realme C2 handset at Dazar also ended in less than two minutes when 500 units of the handset model were sold.
Relatively low market price considering the configurations has helped the handset brand attain the consumers’ interest.
Realme 6i is the first smartphone in Bangladesh with the MediaTek Helio G80.
With the octa-core reaching up to 2.0 GHz and the integrated Mali-G52 class graphics processor giving a boost up to 950MHz, the handset will ensure peak performance and a highly responsive user-experience in gaming, officials of the company said.
The 48MP AI quad camera setup consists of a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP 119° ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP black and white portrait lens and a 2MP 4cm macro lens along with a 16MP selfie camera.
The 6i has a massive 5,000 mAh battery with a USB Type-C charging port which supports 18W quick charge and reverse charging.
With 4GB RAM and 128 GB ROM, Realme 6i comes in two colours – milk white and green tea.
