AskMadhav episode 16: Realme Smartwatch teased, Realme 6 front cam slowmo & UIS in April, Realme 6 Pro purple variant & more
Since the launch of its first smartphone, Realme 1 in India, Realme as a brand has seen its growth multiply at a rapid pace.
Moreover, the company over the course of its operation has also built a huge user/fan base that is constantly keeping the company on the edge of its seats to bring something unique and innovative.
As a matter of fact, this has been one of the strong footholds of other Chinese OEMs (example OnePlus) that lets them keep in touch with the user views and plausibly, try to provide them want they want on their devices.
Now, you might be aware of the AskMadhav YouTube episodic series, where every month, Realme’s CEO Madhav Seth takes selected questions from users and comes up with a response to those queries.
Yesterday, it was the 16th Episode of AskMadhav where the CEO has spilled out new information about some interesting developments in the backyard of Realme. Let us take a look at some of the interesting and important information, one by one:
Why did Realme Increase the prices of Realme 6 and 6 Pro. What’s the new product philosophy of Realme?

And to answer this, the CEO stated that in order to provide the users a worthy upgrade, Realme not only had to put in quad cameras and a better processor, but had to put in some extra features to bring an overall improved product.
And this was the only reason why putting the Realme 6 and 6 Pro around the 10K bracket was not possible.
There was a purple variant of Realme 6 Pro in the product video. Are we bringing that color too?

Will we get features like Nightscape 3.0 and Tripod mode for other Realme devices?
Coming in as a bummer for some, Seth responded to this query saying that these features are developed based on hardware that is specific to some Realme models. Future devices will definitely get the Nightscape 3.0 and Tripod mode features, but this won’t be coming in the existing devices.

What is the story behind Narzo?
Madhav responded to this question that, as the company was launched with the motto of “Power meets style”, Realme Nazro series, which includes Nazro 10 and 10A packs in the latest processor and a big battery.
However, being a market leader, the company cannot only thrive on power and style as there are other trend-setting technologies that Realme has brought in India.
For instance, the first smartphone in India with a 64 MP camera, and the fastest charging tech in India with the 50W to 65W fast charging. So, the Nazro series was made to bring in powerful and unique features along with innovative style.
