The global shortage of chipsets has somewhat affected the building of Realme 9 series; since you know that Realme won’t compromise on quality. We have resolved this through close discussion with chipset makers and Realme 9 series will come to users in 2022. Despite the chipset shortage which resulted in the delay of many products from multiple brands; Realme still successfully managed to launch Realme 8i with India’s first Helio G96 processor in our 4G line. And Realme 8s 5G with World’s first Dimensity 810 in our 5G line. Our tradition is to launch fantastic products before Diwali as Diwali gifts for our consumers. This will continue in 2021. Realme 8s 5G is specially developed for our India users. We don’t think more choices with modern technology are a problem. Users desire them.
According to the top manager of Realme; they will manage to reach the mark of 200 million mobile phones sold in 2022. There are plans to enter the top 2 in the Indian market (it is not difficult to guess that Xiaomi is leaving the first place).

In the same year, it plans to expand its portfolio of devices by releasing by November 14, 2021; the Realme GT Neo 2 smartphone, a robot vacuum cleaner, and a TV set-top box.
