realme, as the country’s no.1 smartphone company for Q1 and Q2 2021, continues its Global Fan Fest celebration this entire August. The company aims to show its gratitude for the continuous support and loyalty it has received from its Filipino audience through a variety of events, promo campaigns, and other initiatives.
Since arriving in the Philippines in 2018, realme has undeniably gone on to be the fastest-growing smartphone company in the Philippines. It has achieved tremendous year-over-year growth and continues to disrupt the industry with its lineup of smartphones and AioT products.
The brand has cemented its position as the no. 1 smartphone brand in the country as it was the top smartphone vendor for two consecutive quarters according to separate reports from Canalys and Counterpoint Research.
“In just less than three years, realme has managed to achieve unimaginable success in the Philippines, and we could not have done this without the incredible support of our fans and community. Knowing that we have the realme Squad with us every step of the way pushes us to outdo ourselves and reach greater heights. We are truly grateful for your loyalty, and we hope that our Global Fan Fest this month will spread joy and optimism amid these challenging times.”
Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing
