“Realme’s upcoming 5G phones will be across different price segments to reach a wider audience”
Realme X50 Pro 5G launched in India on Monday as the country’s first 5G smartphone. The phone was simultaneously launched globally at an event in Madrid. At the Madrid event, the company’s country manager Emilio Alvarez revealed the brand’s 5G plans for the year. Realme mentioned that it’s planning to introduce at least five 5G smartphones this year as the company aims to rapidly expand its 5G ecosystem. The 5G phones will be across price segments, and the company said that it believes there will be demand for the next-gen network in the lower market segments.
Interestingly, Realme will no longer launch 4G devices in China. Instead, it would unveil 5G smartphones as a part of its “All in 5G” strategy. At present, Realme X50 5G and X50 Pro 5G are the only two 5G smartphones in the company’s portfolio. The latter was launched in India earlier this week, although 5G services are yet to commercially rollout in the country.
