realme is the world’s fastest brand to reach 50 million smartphone sales in just two years according to Counterpoint’s Q3 2020 smartphone shipment report. realme sped to achieving this feat in just a couple of years since its founding. In the Philippines, realme maintains its momentum as the top 2 smartphone company as it launches its new sub-brand Narzo on November 05.
realme is indeed in full throttle across the globe. The young and trendsetting brand recorded a historic high of 14.8 million quarterly shipments in Q3 2020, growing the business by 132% QoQ, surpassing analysts expectations.
According to Counterpoint, realme’s growth rate in shipment volume represents “the strongest growth momentum among major global OEMs”. realme accelerated to 50M sales because it enjoyed great success with the youth worldwide, with this segment of users making up most of its customer base. “realme grew to become one of the top 5, or even top 3, brands in its key markets, including India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Philippines and some other Southeast Asian countries”, says Research Analyst Abhilash Kumar at Counterpoint.
Kumar, on realme’s performance, noted that “with its efforts to bring the affordable yet premium-like products to consumers, as well as its ability to offer smooth digital shopping and after-sales services in different countries, realme has emerged as the most resilient brand during and after the pandemic crisis.”
Feel the Power: a strong local presence that mirrors global speed
realme Philippines, considered as one of the key markets of the young brand, has catapulted to being the top 2 smartphone brand in the country in Q2 2020. This reflects the strength of the global foothold the brand has.
With the aim of being the most available and accessible brand across price segments, realme is launching its sub-brand Narzo in the Philippines on November 05. The Narzo line was first launched in India in early 2020, touted to be an array of smartphones that bring powerful processors at much more attainable price points. This particular line targets gaming buffs who are looking for gaming smartphones offered at reasonable price segments.
realme Philippines is launching the Narzo line with the realme Narzo 20, a competitive gaming smartphone. The realme Narzo 20 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85, which brings 1GHz GPU and HyperEngine enhancements for gaming greatness. The gaming device also has a triple-rear camera setup headlined by a 48-megapixel primary image sensor. An immersive display will also be enjoyed by users with the Narzo 20’s 6.5-inch HD+ display with 88.7 percent screen-to-body ratio. Users need not fret over battery power as under the Narzo 20’s hood is a massive 6,000mAh mega battery with support for 18W fast charging.
Fans are invited to join the livestream launch of the new device on the official realme Facebook page and YouTube Channel at 6:00 p.m. on November 05, 2020. Exciting prizes await the online audience.
realme Watch 3 Review | All Around Fitness Smartwatch and More #realmeWatch3
realme recently launch the realme Watch 3 which is the successor of the realme Watch 2 released last year. The first thing I noticed is that the display size of the realme Watch 3 is a bit bigger than the Watch 2 which is a a 1.8″ Super Large & Bright Display that utilizes a TFT-LCD panel with frames per second set to 30FPS. Most of the specs and features are similar but has significant difference to name a few. I was fortunate to have a review unit to show you guys all the features of the new realme Watch 3.
The watch 3 looks very premium and solid and it doesn’t look and feel cheap. You can compare it with the higher end smartwatches. It also features a 7-Day Battery Life which is already long for a standard smartwatch. It also has IP68 Dust & Water Resistance where you can use your realme Watch 3 even if you are washing the dishes or hands, you don’t have to worry getting the watch soaking wet as it is tight sealed as shown in the pictures. The realme Watch 3 comes in two color options: Black and Grey which fit for both men and women.
One of the biggest improvement of the realme Watch 3 is the sports mode which feature more than 110+ activities which is more than the previous model. It is your ultimate partner in terms of health and fitness monitoring where it has an All-Day Comprehensive Health Monitoring. Perfect for fitness enthusiast and who is planning to have a better lifestyle by integrating the realme Watch 3 health features for that fitness goal.
Fitness/Sports mode includes Outdoor run, Cricket, Indoor Run, Strength Training, Football, Basketball, Badminton, Yoga, Elliptical, Indoor Cycle, Outdoor Cycle, Mountaineering, Trail Running and many more.
Connectivity and Social Network
What I like about the realme Watch 3 is the seamless connectivity across my social media accounts. First the SMS, where it can immediately notify the watch when there is an incoming SMS message and mobile call without much hassle and vibrates the smart watch even if your mobile is far from you, it is connected through Bluetooth, and in fact it has a Clear Bluetooth Calling feature, where it can handle consistent connection regardless of movement which is perfect of those who have an active lifestyle.
You can also connect your Social Media Network notifications and messaging like Facebook, Twitter, Viber and many more. This makes me more updated with my online activities even without looking at my phone, even if I am on the go or away from my phone, I can check the messages directly from the realme Watch 3.
You can monitor the weather using the realme Watch 3 which is amazing, in just a few swipe, I can see the weather conditions today & tomorrow.
Heart Beat / Sleep Tracking
I think this is very important to keep track of your health in real time even during medical checkups & emergencies can determine your conditions through your heartbeat which can save lives. This essential for those who have heart conditions or monitor your heartbeat during workouts & exercise.
The realme Watch 3 is an improvement of it’s predecessor, it delivers the same quality features that a health enthusiast would love and enjoy. With a bigger screen size, more training and exercise modes, it will make your smartwatch experience more interactive and fulfilling. I recommend the realme Watch 3 to existing or 1st time smartwatch users to try it out. realme Watch 3 is priced at PHP3,499
