realme X3 Series India Launch seems Imminent as teased by CMO Francis

realme unveiled realme X3 SuperZoom last month in Europe after being in news for a while. realme X3 SuperZoom launched last week in Malaysia, the device is confirmed to land in Indonesia on 16th June. The device is due for debut in India, though it’s confirmed to launch in India as it had received BIS certifications. realme CMO, Francis Wang, has been teasing the launch of realme X3 Series in India for quite some time now, and today he created a little suspense on India launch.

Earlier this week, he asked on Twitter, what SoC do fans think the X3 Superzoom will be launched with, raising suspicion among many that the version of realme X3 Superzoom launched in other countries may not make it to India in the same form.

But today, Francis said that he really wants to announce the launch date but can not do so due to the company restrictions. Additionally, Francis has confirmed that realme X3 is indeed coming to India, and will be a 4G device, which is significant from the “#BestValue4GSmartphone” tag.

This leads us to believe that his earlier tweet might just be banter, as other anticipated SoC(s) like the Snapdragon 765G are 5G chipsets, and it wouldn’t make sense to disable 5G whilst having the hardware to support it, this points in the direction that X3 Superzoom might end up coming with the Snapdragon 855+ itself as opposed to what many anticipated earlier. Last week, a leakster claimed that the realme X3 will also pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, but we are finding it a little hard to believe.
