Plus, an exclusive flash sale this February 12



If you’re after realme’s midrange offering, you may have gravitated towards the latest realme 7 series. However, you may also want to take a look at the realme 6 series. Starting February, both the realme 6 and 6 Pro will be PhP 3,000 off their starting price. Plus, there will also be exciting discounts on select smartphones and wearables.

With the permanent price drop, buyers can purchase the realme 6 Pro at a new low price of PhP 13,990. The top-of-the-line model in the realme 6 series, it packs a Full HD+ resolution with a 90Hz display, a quad-camera setup, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G.
