With barely 2 years into the market, realme, the once-challenger smartphone brand working hard to squeeze their way into an already cut-throat industry finds themselves leading and landing on the number 2 spot! It’s no small feat that they were able to do this, but as someone who has been covering them since their C1 days, realme seemed to know how to properly position themselves and offer exactly what the market wants at exactly the right time that they want it.
Once thought as a “budget” brand, realme was able to maneuver around that perception by cultivating a solid community (aka their ‘realme Squad’) and strengthen various customer touchpoints engaging them and creating robust dialogue between the brand and their target audience. Fast forward 2 years later, and even in the midst of this god-awful pandemic, realme has been providing tangible and intangible values that probably caught its competitors by surprise.
From creating worth-while devices that combines top-of-class internals with eye-catching designs and offering them at a fraction of the cost from other brands, the market responded well by supporting the brand and their releases and this, in turn, gave realme a whopping 97% Quarter-on-Quarter growth amidst a grueling year (according to the Q2 2020 SEA study of Counterpoint Research).
realme Philippines, as gratitude for its fans and customers’ strong support, is making the price of its 90Hz Helio G90 gaming smartphone realme 6 more affordable. The marked down realme 6, with a 4GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration, now retails for only Php 10,990, Php 1,000 less of its original price of Php 11,990. The price-drop blow-out starts on October 9 and can be availed in all realme stores nationwide and the realme Philippines official stores on Shopee and Lazada.
