Meet the new Realme Narzo 10A and Realme Narzo 10. True to the leaks, they are essentially rebadged versions of the Realme C3 and Realme 6i, both of which have been announced for the Philippine market. That being said, don’t expect to see these phones hit local retailers at any point in the future.

Realme Narzo 10A and Narzo 10 price and availability

In India, the Narzo 10A will be priced at ₹8,499 (around P5,648 or $112), and the Narzo 10 costs ₹11,999 (P7,974 or $159). The latter will be available online at Realme.com and Flipkart from May 18th, while the Narzo 10A is expected to go on sale on May 22.

There’s only one configuration of each phone on offer in the country. The Narzo 10A comes in So Blue and So White colors with a big, bold Realme branding on the back, whereas the Narzo 10 is available in That Green and That White colors.

The cheaper of the two, the Narzo 10A most distinctive (and attractive?) design feature is the Realme logo on the back, which is also said to be resistant to fingerprints, smudges, and scratches. The rear panel has a physical fingerprint sensor, which Realme claims can unlock the device in 0.27 seconds.

The screen measures 6.5 inches diagonally, with an 89.8% sreen-to-body ratio, a tall 20:9 aspect ratio, and a smaller notch up top for the 5-megapixel selfie camera.
