- Realme has discontinued its X-series of smartphones
- It will be replaced by the upcoming Realme GT series
- The GT series of smartphones are set to launch next week in India
Realme X-series of smartphones are officially getting axed, as confirmed by the brand’s CEO Madhav Sheth in an interview with TechRadar. There will be no more devices in the lineup which makes the Realme X7 Max 5G – launched in May this year – the last in the series.
In the interview, Sheth said, “The X will be replaced by the GT; so the GT is the new X.” To jog your memory, there are ten phones in the X-series including the X7 Max 5G, X7 Pro 5G (review), X7 5G, X50 Pro 5G (review), X3 SuperZoom (review), X3, X2, X2 Pro (review), XT, and the Realme X.
Realme GT series to replace Realme X series
Sheth reiterated that the Realme X-series is getting replaced by the Realme GT series. The latter has already debuted in Chinese and European markets earlier this year. It is also set to launch in India on August 18th. The Realme GT series is offered in standard, Master Edition, and Master Explorer Edition versions.
The Realme X lineup of smartphones catered to the mid-range price segment. Notably, the Realme X7 Max 5G announced in India was a rebranded variant of Realme GT Neo in China. With the discontinuation of the X-series, such rebrandings won’t happen in the future. It’s worth noting that the Realme GT series offers a mix of mid-range and flagship phones.
Other smartphone lineups in Realme’s portfolio won’t be affected i.e. the Realme C-series, the numbered series, and the Narzo series. The new GT lineup will just be an addition and take ahead the X line’s legacy.
