Realme is one of the fastest-growing smartphone brands and there is data to back up that claim. the company recently announced that it has shipped up to 50 million smartphones. For a company that opened shop in 2018, this makes it the fastest brand to hit such a milestone. Realme was founded in India but has now spread its tentacles to Europe and even China. The Indian market is key to the brand’s growth with the recent figures from Realme’s Festive Days Promo affirming this.
Data released by Realme shows that it sold a cool 8.3 million units of its products cutting across smartphones, smartwatches, smart bands, earbuds and others during the promo period from October 16 to November 15. Out of this staggering figure, smartphones cornered the lion share with over 6.3 million phones making up the entire sales. This represents a year-on-year growth of over 20%.
Realme expanded its product portfolio this year with the launch of several smartphones as well as wearables and smart TVs. The company equally introduced a smart plug, security camera, electric toothbrushes, and a few Active-noise cancelling wireless earphones.
The company equally hinted that of all the smartphones sold, the Realme 7 series took the front seat with over 1.6 million units sold in both offline and online channels. The Realme 7 series comprises the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro. Realme is expected to expand the lineup further with the launch of the Realme 7 5G on Thursday (November 19). The device is said to be a rebranded Realme V5 5G for the global markets. The phone is expected to pack a 6.5-inch FullHD+ LCD display with 90Hz refresh rate. It will be powered by a Dimensity 720 SoC and co equipped with a 48MP quad-camera setup. There will also be a 16MP selfie camera and under the hood, a 5,000 mAh battery with 30W charging will keep the lights on.
Apart from India, the Chinese company is also looking to expand its market base to other regions. Realme recently partnered with Dutch retailer Belsimpel to sell its phones and other gadgets in the Netherlands.
