KUALA LUMPUR, 7 November 2018 – Realme, an emerging smartphone brand that specialises in providing high quality smartphones, today unveiled its line-up of devices for the Malaysian market – the Realme 2, Realme 2 Pro, and Realme C1. Designed with today’s youth in mind, Realme’s tagline, ‘Proud to Be Young’, is focused on revolutionising the smartphone for the younger generation, combining top notch performances with contemporary style.
“By embodying the spirit of ‘Proud to Be Young’, Realme provides an optimum combination of bold, innovative designs and a balanced integration between software and hardware. Realme represents the concept of ‘Power Meets Style’, or the amalgamation of fast performance and trendy designs, with remarkable prices,” said Tiffany Teh, Brand Manager, Realme Malaysia.
Realme is dedicated to addressing the needs of the youth. The brand has been breaking records ever since launching in India and Indonesia earlier in the year. In India, a total of 200,000 units of the Realme 2 were sold in under 5 minutes after being officially launched – making Realme the fourth most popular online smartphone brand in India. The brand’s launch in Indonesia last month followed suit when it sold more than 15,000 units of the Realme 2 in only 10 minutes. An astonishing 33 billion Rupiah were spent on the Realme 2 Pro alone, in just 3 minutes!
Also present at the launch was Goh Thiah Liang, Country Manager, Qualcomm International. With Qualcomm committed to create paths to a smarter, and more connected world, Qualcomm’s partnership with Realme is unsurprising. “We see the increasing power of the younger generation thus it only made sense to work with Realme. The brand, while young, has some deep insights about what the youth require from devices like a smartphone. We are indeed proud to be collaborating with such a foresighted brand to provide the best, affordable products for the target market,” he said.
