Realme is a young company with just two years of existence. The company that came to the world as Oppo’s subsidiary on May 4, 2018, now is a Top 7 smartphone brand. Moreover, it’s a top 5 in 9 markets of the 59 where it’s officially present. When it comes to the Indian stronghold, one of Realme’s biggest focus, the company is one of the few smartphone makers giving headaches to Xiaomi in the mid-range segment.
The company announced today that there are 40 million Realme users around the world. Most recently, 150,000 users joined the group in just 2 minutes after purchasing the new Realme C11. Before that, it moved 70,000 Realme Narzo 10 phones in the same period of time. The company has pretty much established this solid user base due to its competitive smartphones with generous specifications and affordable prices.

Gizchina News of the week
To put things in perspective, Realme reached one million sales in September of 2018, just a few months after its launch. The company hit 10 million shipments in August 2019, then 25 million in January this year. The company completed two years in May with 35 million global users. Despite the disruption in the market caused by COVID-19, we can pretty much conclude that Realme is keeping its growth. Now the company’s goal is reaching 50 million users globally until the end of 2020.
We can say that the company is on the right path to achieve this. Realme is pretty much consolidated in the market this year with low-end, mid-range, and even a solid range of flagship smartphones. The company just needs to keep with the trends and it will soon become even more popular in the market.
Realme’s upcoming flagship will sport a Rectangular Quad-Camera array
Since we’re talking about Realme smartphones, the company has a new flagship in two for the coming months. This handset will be part of a new lineup of flagships. For the first time, we’re going to see a Realme flagship with the rectangular camera arrangement. This particular design language is really popular in 2020.
The company shared a new poster today on its official Weibo account where this design aspect was confirmed. The camera includes four sensors and a LED flash, housed in a rectangular block. While this trend is popular, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the user’s favorite one. Companies are just sticking with it one after another. It’s sad to see Realme leaving its traditional design, making its phone less unique. But well, we guess that’s how the industry works nowadays.
