Realme is one of the brands in growth on the global market: data from the third quarter reported shipments of 800 percentage points compared to the previous year, the boom that has allowed the chinese company to position themselves at the 7th place at the global level.
Not only the smartphone: of course, X50 5G is around the corner – will be presented on 7 January, the news fresh this morning – and throughout the year have been sold already 15 million. This is exceptional, considering that the 2019 has sanctioned the official launch of the brand. Strong of its success, the Realme is starting to diversify the offer, for example, with Buds in the Air, earphones true wireless just introduced in India – the Country in which the company is investing heavily – and now seems to be the time of the first fitness band.
To reveal it is Madhav Sheth, the CEO of the company, who spoke about the future of the brand in the course of the 13th episode of #AskMadhav. If you do not want to watch the whole episode, jump to minute 1:37, and listen for the answer to the specific question: “When we launch the fitness band Realme?”.
Well, the wearable device will be placed on the market within the first half of next year. Unfortunately at the moment we know only this, since rumor and previews on the technical specifications and aesthetics of the product are not ready yet. In all probability, the smartband is dedicated to the fitness of Realme will compete directly with similar devices, first of all, Xiaomi Mi Band 4 (well-examined thoroughly in our review), the Band 5i, that Honor will find in the October, and – always an Honor – Band 5, defined as “the best smartband economic”. Also OnePlus, among other things, it is said, can soon enter the field with its first wearable. This is rumor, but based on information that is reliable enough.
In short, the major manufacturers have all intention of entering the market of wearable – if you have not already done so: to attract the economic and financial data, which show a growth sector (see report Canalys) and, therefore, full of new opportunities for profit.
