Do you think we should launch #realmeGTNEO2 in India?

As can be seen in the above tweet, Sheth has asked fans to retweet and reply with the #LeapToNeo hashtag if they want the Realme GT Neo 2 to launch in India. The model number of the GT Neo 2 that debuted in China is RMX3381. The same model had bagged approval from certification platforms such as the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). These certifications hint that GT Neo 2 will be heading to India and global markets.
A slightly tweaked version of the Realme GT Neo was rebranded as the Realme X7 Max 5G in India. Since Realme has discontinued the X-series with the GT lineup, it is likely that the GT Neo 2 will arrive with the same name in India. Probably, the company may announce the GT Neo 2 in October in the country.
