OPPO’s sub-brand Realme is all set to launch the Realme X in India on July 15. Alongside the standard models, there will also be the Realme X Spider-Man: Far From Home gift box edition making its way to the country. To give eager fans the chance to secure one of these phones during its first sale, the phone maker is going to conduct a blind order sale before the launch, where fans will also get the chance to avail an INR 500 discount on the smartphone.
Realme X Blind Order Sale: Details, Conditions
The blind order sale for the Realme X will begin tomorrow, July 11, and will last until a day before the launch of the smartphone, July 14. Those interested in being the first to get their hands on the smartphone will need to make a payment of INR 1,000. This needs to be done over on Realme.com/in by logging in with a valid realme ID within the duration of the blind sale. Everyone who places a blind order will have their amount deposited in their account on July 22, after which they can purchase the smartphone. Furthermore, those who opt for this scheme will receive an additional INR 500 in their accounts, effectively providing them with an INR 500 discount upon the purchase of a Realme X.
Realme is offering this Blind Order Sale deal on both the standard and Spider-Man: Far From Home edition of the Realme X. For the standard models, only the first 2000 customers will be able to participate in the blind order sale. Purchase of the smartphone needs to be made between July 22 noon to July 27. Shipments of smartphones after successful payment will commence from July 22. If payment is not made until July 27, the customer will lose their chance, and the paid amount will automatically be refunded.
For the Spider-Man gift box, on the other hand, only the first 300 customers will be able to place a blind order. The purchase period for this smartphone also starts on July 22 noon but will end on July 26. Shipments for these gift boxes will commence from July 25. Again, failing to make full payment before July 26 will result in a forfeit, with the paid amount being automatically refunded.
