CEO Realme: the company will go to conquer Europe and the United States

Surely, some of our readers have heard about the company Realme. This is a sub-brand of Oppo that sells inexpensive

devices, mainly in the Indian market.The manufacturer recently announced its flagship smartphone Realme 3 Pro. After his presentation, GSMArena journalists managed to talk with the company’s CEO.

What told

According to Madhav Sheth, Realmewill continue to produce smartphones in the $100 to $300 range. In addition, the company wants to start producing accessories and plans to introduce a device with 5G support. True, you shouldn’t expect it before 2020.

The manufacturer’s plans also include expansion into the United Statesand Europe. In the first case, there are no deadlines yet, but Realme smartphones may appear in Europe as early as August this year. They will be sold without intermediaries through the company’s online store. Whether they will reach our market is unknown.

If we talk about foldable devices, CEO Realme does not rule them out in the future, but at the moment, this technology is still “raw”.

Finally, Sheth shared some statistics.According to him, 30% of the company’s clients switched from Samsung smartphones, and 40% from Xiaomi. This is logical, since Realme is positioning itself as a competitor to these two giants in the budget and mid-budget segments.
