Realme has already established itself in the Philippine market as one of the go to brands for affordable yet, quality products. Their current offering, the C1, has in fact, received a lot of positive feedback from both consumers and tech reviewers for its competitive spec-price combination.
The brand has also been very active in both online and offline activities, which have mostly been well-received by the Filipino consumers. Most of the time, the C1 would sell out every single time they had a flash sale. The demand was such, that the brand resorted to establishing its first physical kiosk in SM City North EDSA, in order to give more consumers a chance to experience the product first-hand.
Realme has already expanded to 1500 stores nationwide, setting a foothold in major cities including Baguio, Cebu, Pampanga, Iloilo, Davao, Cagayan de Oro and General Santos, with more locations to come. And as part of its goal of providing excellent aftersales service, the brand already has 23 service centers nationwide, and has plans of putting up more in the near future.
The brand will continue to offer real value by eyeing products from the PhP5,000 to PhP15,000 price range. As for their follow up to the C1, we’ve been told that it’s something that hasn’t been released in the market yet. If so, we’re guessing that it’s the rumored Realme C3. In any case, the company notes that its next products will highlight optimal performance and optics, as well as great battery life.
They are also offering other products in the market – the Tech Backpack and Realme Buds that are made for the technology enthusiast. Both are made with exceptional quality, and are being offered at very affordable prices.
“We’ve been receiving positive feedback since day one. We are thankful and humbled by the warm market response given to us by Filipinos all over the country. We also continue to get good feedback from local dealers who see both the value and potential
of the brand.”
– Jacky Chen, Realme Chief Operating Officer
“What we provide in Realme is a smartphone experience that is valuable and enjoyable at the same time, a formula that the youth today is looking for.

We hope to continue offering a richer smartphone experience with the combination of game-changing products and a community of Realme users who can learn from one another.”
