Realme Mobiles has showcased its Realme X Spider-Man edition for India ahead of the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home on Friday. It's not uncommon for smartphones manufacturers to partner with pop-culture icons and is something we have previously seen from companies like OnePlus, Xiaomi, and Oppo. Realme is just another addition to this list with its upcoming Realme X which will launch on July 15.

Realme X was announced on May 15 at an event in China, and Realme CEO Madhav Sheth had hinted that it was going to be priced around ₹18,000-mark.

There doesn't seem to be any cosmetic change to the Realme X for the Spider-Man edition.

Inside the box, we get the Realme X, VOOC 3.0 adapter, Spider-Man case, and a sim-eject pin.
