Poco X2, Samsung Galaxy M21, Redmi Note 8, Redmi 8, Redmi 8A Double, and Realme C3 are the six smartphones That have received a price increase in the past one month.
In some cases, smartphone manufacturers have verified the growth happened mainly due to supply constraints due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is, however, important to point out that the recent increases shortly after phone companies increased their prices because of an increase in GST that came into effect in April this year.
The Poco X2 price hike took place only a week. The phone that was previously accessible with a starting cost of Rs. 16,999 received a revised price tag of Rs. 17,499 for the base, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. Similarly, the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version also got an increased price of Rs. 18,499up from 17,999. The top-end version with 8GB RAM + 256GB storage configuration, however, didn’t obtain any changes and is still available at Rs. 20,999.
