Realme: The evolution in electronics is stronger every day, bringing new features, innovative formats and products that we didn’t think we had. And with that, new brands were appearing in the market, bringing more options, competitive prices and surprising functions.
Here in Brazil, we already have some established brands, which bring many new features and are always improving their products, but new Chinese brands are increasingly gaining space in the market, offering more options, products that were not yet available and more competitiveness for the category of electronics.
In this content we are going to present a bit of Realme, which is one of the brands that arrived in Brazil recently and already offers interesting products.
Who is Realme?
Realme is a Chinese electronics manufacturer, founded in 2018 in Shenzhen. The company was born as a subsidiary of Oppo (another Chinese cell phone company), but currently operates independently. Both are part of the conglomerate whose parent company is BBK Electronics.
In January 2021 the brand arrived in Brazil, making available two smartphone models, a totally wireless headset and a smartwatch, and even though the catalog is small, it intends to be among the three favorites of the Brazilian consumer within five years old.
Like Xiaomi, Realme has become popular for offering cost-effective smartphones, even in the advanced intermediate segment. In 2020, the company broke a world record by becoming the brand that has sold 50 million devices the fastest since its founding. With that feat, the company surpassed Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi.
Realme’s plans for Brazil include winning over, mainly, the young audience, at least initially. Therefore, the company is expected to launch smartphones focusing on new technologies, flashy designs and high-end cameras.
