Realme is steadily increasing its presence in the affordable Indian market segment with back to back launches. Just weeks ago, the company launched Realme 2 Pro, the company’s contender in the highly competitive budget segment. Along with that, Realme made a surprise ingress with Realme C1 into the entry-level segment which is not tapped into by any major brands other than Xiaomi and Asus.

Today, Realme has launched yet another phone, the Realme U1, that bridges the price gap between the Realme C1 and Realme 2 Pro.

This new smartphone belongs to the ‘Selfie-centric’ U-series and is the first phone to employ MediaTek’s Helio P70 mobile platform.
