Last week, Realme announced the Realme C11 smartphone in India. Before its launch, a microsite for the Realme 6i phone had appeared on Flipkart retailer site. The listing had suggested that it will go official along with the Realme C11 phone. However, the Realme 6i listing that carried some of its key specs was taken down. The handset did not go official with the C11. A tweet released by Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth yesterday suggested that the company may soon announce the Realme 6i phone.

The tweet states that Realme will be expanding the Realme 6 series soon with another powerful edition. The tweet does not mention the name of the Realme 6 series phone that will be announced in India in the near future. It seems that the company could be teasing the arrival of the Realme 6i phone.
The Realme 6i listing on Flipkart had revealed that it will be priced under Rs. 15,000 (~$200). It also revealed that the phone is equipped with a punch-hole display that offers a 90Hz refresh rate, a side-facing fingerprint reader, Helio G90T processor, and a quad-camera setup. Recent reports have revealed that the Realme 6s that debuted in Europe in May will be rebranded in India as Realme 6i. The only major difference between the Realme 6 and Realme 6s is that the former has a 64-megapixel main camera whereas the latter features a 48-megapixel primary shooter.
