Now, ahead of the phone’s launch, all the information related to the device has been leaked online, including specifications, variants, color options, and pricing.
As per the leak, the upcoming Realme U1 will be available in two memory configurations — 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage. The phone will be available in three color options — Ambitious Black, Brave Blue, and Fiery Gold.
