A few days ago, Realme announced that it had reached the 1 million units sales milestone for the Realme C2 (review) and that it would be celebrating the auspicious occasion by announcing new deals and offers. True to its word, the brand has revealed that it would be conducting a #realmeMillionDays campaign, where fans will be able to grab the Realme C2 on open sale, while the Realme 3 Pro (review) will be offered at a discounted price. The #realmeMillionDays sale will commence on July 10 and will run until July 12. Both the smartphone will be up for grabs over on Flipkart, Realme.com, and even via 8,000 offline partners.
The Realme 3 Pro has been available on open sale for well over a month now. During the Realme Million Days sale, this smartphone will be offered at an INR 500 discount for its 4GB RAM model, effectively bringing the price down to INR 13,499. On the other hand, the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model of the Realme 3 Pro will be getting an INR 1,000 discount that brings its price down to INR 14,999. The top-end 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model should also be getting its price cut down to INR 15,999.
Realme C2 Gets Two-Year Warranty
Perhaps the most significant deal Realme seems to be pushing to its fans is the two-year warranty that will be offered on the Realme C2. Furthermore, the smartphone will be up for grabs on open sale, meaning that you needn’t worry about the smartphone selling out for the duration of this sale period.

In a press release, CEO Madhav Sheth expressed his excitement by saying, “With the launch of our extended 2-year warranty scheme, we are also providing every realme C2 customer with more value for their purchase during the offer period. Having sold 1 million units in a short span since its launch, we are confident that this power-packed budget smartphone will continue to remain popular amongst online and offline shoppers across India,”
It just so happens that Realme is offering a two-year warranty on the Realme C2 mere days after Xiaomi announced that it would be doing the same for the recently unveiled Redmi 7A. This Realme Million Days sale also happens to be taking place a day before the Redmi 7A goes on its first sale. Since both smartphones are priced the same, they end up being direct competitors, and it makes sense for Realme to try and seize the opportunity to pull the limelight away from its rival and towards itself.
The addition of a two-year warranty on the Realme C2 is most certainly a sweet deal for potential buyers. We released a comparison of the two phones recently, and the Realme C2 did come out on top as a better overall smartphone. With that said, it is disappointing that the two-year warranty scheme is only being offered for phones purchased during this three-day sale period. If realme can manage to extend the offer to all future sales of this handset, buyers will have another compelling reason to get the smartphone over its competitor.
