Earlier this week, Realme was finally introduced to the world its Realme GT 2 and Realme GT 2 Pro. Not exactly “to the world” as the devices are exclusively available in the Chinese market. However, this will change soon, as expected. The company’s Vice President – Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the Realme GT 2 series will soon make its global debut. The executive confirms that the Realme GT 2 smartphones will hit the European market and the Indian market. This may not be a big surprise, especially for India, as this is one of the key markets for Realme.
“WE’LL BE HAVING A GLOBAL LAUNCH VERY SOON FOR GT 2 SERIES, AND YOU’LL SOON HEAR FROM US. SO IT’S GOING TO BE A GLOBAL LAUNCH AND IT’S GOING TO BE IN EUROPE ALSO.”
Gizchina News of the week
Realme GT 2 series to launch until the end of Q1 2022
Unfortunately, the executive didn’t reveal the timeline for the launch. However, we can expect the devices to hit the aforementioned markets before the end of Q1. Perhaps, we’ll see a debut by the start of March. But it could come earlier, time will tell. Of course, Realme will build a long teaser campaign ahead of the launch.
Pad 2, new tablets, and laptops coming
Back in the last year, the company unveiled its very first tablet in the form of Realme Pad. While some thought that it could be a premium tablet, Realme surprised us with a cost-effective option but that still carried a decent design with an aluminum finish. For this year, we expect the company to reveal a new sequel for the Realme Pad, but more tablets will also come. The company CMO, Francis Wong, a couple of times talked about a tablet with an OLED display. However, it didn’t launch in 2021. We can only presume that it will appear sometime this year.
In fact, Madhav Sheth revealed during the interview that the company will launch more tablets at different price points this year. The executive also revealed that Realme has plans to reveal more laptops. The Realme Book was another first for the company brought in 2021. For this year, the company may expand this lineup of laptops with more products.
The last point of the interview involves the Android update policy. When asked if the company will stick with the three-year update schedule that is becoming a standard for major OEMs, the executive stated that Realme still wants to stick with two years Android update policy, even for flagships.
