It has almost been a year since the Realme has first entered into the Indian smartphone market. Right from its inception, the smartphone maker aims to compete with the likes of Xiaomi. The brand is known for developing devices that not only look visually appealing but also pack in powerful hardware. If the recent report is to be believed, Realme is now branching into the smart television space. Like its smartphones, Realme TV will compete with the likes of the Xiaomi Mi TV lineup.
Realme TV to Launch in India by the End of this Year
This report comes courtesy of 91mobiles. As per the report, Realme is planning to launch its first-ever smart television in the Indian market. The television is most likely to be called Realme TV and will hit the market by the end of this year. At the moment, there is no word on the specifications as well as features of the upcoming television. It is worth mentioning that Realme is expected to launch Realme XT 730G which is slated to launch in December this year. We might see the Realme TV launching alongside the Realme XT 730G.
Coming to the pricing, we’re expecting Realme’s first smart television to come with a budget pricing. It would be pretty interesting to see how well the Realme TV will perform. No wonder, the brand will face immense competition from Xiaomi which has already made its name in the Smart TV segment. In fact, Xiaomi has a massive portfolio of smart TVs ranging from 32-inch to premium 65-inch screen sizes. Since Realme focusses more on the budget segment in smartphones, a budget television makes more sense.
Speaking of televisions, OnePlus recently entered into the premium Smart TV with its 55-inch 4K OnePlus TV. Furthermore, we have also seen Huawei launching its own smart TV. With Realme entering the television market, it would be interesting to see how the budget smart TV space will change.
Update: As per another source, Realme has denied the fact that the brand is, in fact, working on Realme TV. Even if they are, the brand is not planning to launch it anytime soon. Well, whatever the case is, we will have to wait and see whether the brand launches the smart TV or not. We’ll keep you guys updated no matter what.
