Chinese smartphone brand Realme on Tuesday said it would not pass on the GST hike to users with its new Narzo series as the company has decided to absorb the cost.

“Realme Narzo pricing will consider the GST and currency rate and the price of the devices will not be increased in April,’ the company told IANS.

“The cost of Realme Narzo series has already been considered keeping the GST hike and currency rate,” the company added.

With the GST Council, headed by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, increasing the GST on mobile phones from 12 per cent to 18 per cent, industry experts had indicated that it would hit the industry and brands would not be in a position to absorb this impact.

“Realme hasn’t increased the price of its smartphones since the second half of 2018 despite various factors like the price hike of smartphone components and supply shortage as well,” said the company.

The Indian rupee rate has been continuously fluctuating and is currently quite low as compared to US dollar.

“This has impacted the overall cost of the smartphone device. Many smartphone brands have increased the price of smartphones in 2019 and 2020 due to issues like supply chain shortage but Realme has always tried to absorb these additional costs,’ the company noted.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
