AskMadhav Episode 12; Realme to launch a 108-MP smartphone, wearables and establish experience stores
You can buy a decent smartphone for around $150 now, thanks to Xiaomi’s aggressive pricing. The Chinese brand has singlehandedly revolutionised the way OEMs price their devices. And, others got no choice but to get along with their strategy.
If you ask me which company effectively followed Xiaomi’s strategy, my answer is going to be Realme. The Oppo spinoff has even challenged the monopoly of the pioneer by selling units like hotcakes. The latest from the brand to go live is Realme X2 Pro.
Alongside launching smartphones, the CEO of the brand in India answers questions from the users on YouTube in a series named AskMadhav. We have already covered its eleventh episode. Guess what! The next iteration has just gone live with some paramount announcements.
In his response to the first question, Madhav confirmed Realme would release more offerings under 30K INR (around 400 USD) price range. And, he also broke another big news that the OEM might bring a smartphone with 108 MP camera (sooner or later).
Do you remember the last episode of AskMadhav? He gave a clue about the arrival of a wearable gadget in it. And, the same happened today too. From his words, I don’t think it’s going to hit the market pretty soon. But yeah, a fitness band or smart watch will come.
You know what an experience store is, don’t you? Well, Realme is planning to establish a few around India, where users can have a hands-on affair with all their products (he called it a tech lifestyle experience store).
In this episode, he had talked about 90 Hz refresh rate, Realme X2 Pro’s camera excellence and vapour cooling technology. Moreover, he denied the possibility of having SuperVOOC chargers work with other phones from the company.
Are you a Realme X2 Pro user? If yes, you will have to know that Android 10 stable build is going to hit your unit by Q1 2020. And, you should know the beta recruitment begins in December (for Realme XT too).
Speaking of December, Realme XT 730G is coming to India in the same month. Besides, they will also bring X2 Pro Master Edition as well. So yeah, we can see even more releases from the company in the upcoming months.
