Apart from the Realme 2 Pro, Flipkart hasn't yet confirmed the other three smartphone launches.

Confirmed brands for the sale
Realme (September 24) Poco F1 (September 27) Oppo (September 28) Motorola (September 29) Samsung (October 1) Vivo (October 2) We have already seen Realme launch its Narzo smartphones in the country, and it will be interesting to see how these new models fare against established players. The company already offers the Realme 1 in India, a phone that was announced in India back in May. There's a possibility that the Realme 2 will be an upgrade to the Realme 1 with a newer processor and other features. It will be interesting to see if there's anything new for Realme 2 that separates it from the Realme 1. Also, Realme was rumoured to be working on a phone with a 48-megapixel rear camera, but that seems unlikely given the presence of a 24-megapixel sensor at the back.
