Our Take

Realme is literally taking the Indian smartphone market by storm. The company has recorded a Stellar seven-fold growth last year and is one of the fastest-growing smartphone brands. Realme launched in 2018 in India as an Oppo sub-brand. However, it was soon decided that Realme will be a standalone company. The company is mostly operating in the budget and mid-range segment and is rivaling brands like Xiaomi and Asus.
