realme CEO, Madhav Sheth had earlier said that the company will absorb GST hike and will not increase upcoming realme Narzo series pricing. In addition to the GST rate hike, the depreciation of the Indian Rupee against the US dollar is also responsible for the current smartphone price hike. It will be interesting to see how fans react to the revised prices, especially with regards to a brand that has been known to offer great specifications at competitive prices. realme Central aims to become a one-stop solution for realme users across the globe, join us on Twitter, and Telegram.
