Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus have one parent company – BBK Electronics. True, formally all of them are considered independent and even managed to create their own sub-brands or “BBK sub-branches”. So, Vivo has an iQOO, and Oppo brought Realme to the market three years ago to fight Xiaomi and its Redmi smartphones. Today Realme has a solid market share and decided it is time to get its own sub-brand.
A message came that Realme will have a “daughter” – DIZO, which will be engaged in the release of smart devices. We will not wait long for the firstborn and will be released soon enough. True, the new items will not be created from scratch, and the company will only rebrand the Realme Watch 2 smartwatch, Realme Buds Air 2 wireless headphones and Realme Buds Wireless 2 Neo. The first of the named headsets will be released as DIZO GoPods D, and the second – DIZO Wireless.
The official presentation of the brand will be held on May 25. At the same time, we hope to learn about which products will be included in the area of interest of DIZO and in which markets they plan to present its products. Perhaps DIZO was invented for the Indian market, and the Realme brand will remain for the whole world.
