Published

on

Global research firms Canalys, Counterpoint Research, and IDC recently confirmed realme’s no. 1 ranking in the local smartphone market for Q2 2021.

realme Philippines continues to dominate the local smartphone industry as it claims the no. 1 spot in the market once again, according to international research firms IDC, Canalys, and Counterpoint Research in their respective Q2 2021 reports. 

With this milestone, the fast-growing tech and lifestyle brand has now managed to hold the top spot for two consecutive quarters—an impressive feat the brand attained in less than three years. The brand first held this position in Q3 of 2020, just less than two years since its entry to the Philippine market in November 2018.

According to Canalys, realme accounted for 26% of the local market share, besting four other smartphone brands in the category. It also reported a 51% year-over-year growth for the brand during this quarter.

The brand also ranked first in a separate report by Counterpoint Research, with a 21% market share. Similarly, realme also showed leadership in e-commerce channels. “realme continued to lead the Philippines online market with a 32% share”, according to the report.

In addition, realme’s industry leadership for Q2 2021 is further validated by IDC as the research firm also reported a number 1 ranking for the brand.

“We are truly grateful for the continuous support of our Filipino fans because without them, this success would not have been possible. Achieving the top spot for two consecutive quarters is no easy feat for a young brand, but we managed to achieve this milestone because of the love and trust of our Squad. Rest assured, this only drives us to reach greater heights and dare to leap with trend-setting innovations and better services for our community,” shares Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing.

realme reaches 100-million mark worldwide

On the global scale, realme also achieved a milestone of 100 million smartphones sold. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, realme still managed to become the fastest global smartphone brand to reach this milestone in three years, according to market research consultancy firm Strategy Analytics. In addition, realme is also the fastest growing major smartphone brand globally in Q2 2021 with a year-over-year growth rate of 149%, as data from research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) showed.

This achievement further validates realme’s sales and business strategies across the globe. Established only in 2018, realme is now the 7th largest smartphone brand with presence in 61 different markets worldwide. 

This 100-million milestone is the latest in line of realme’s spectacular global rise, as the company adds another ‘first’ to its name. “The past three years have really been about an entrepreneurial spirit and untamed growth for realme”, said realme’s CEO, Sky Li. “Thanks to the huge support from our young users, we have been able to reach our goal of shipping 100 million smartphones and have gained significant ground in the smartphone market. We will continue to provide young consumers around the world with products that have premium performance and trend-setting designs at affordable prices.”

Li added that realme’s next goal is to achieve a dual-100 million target – shipping another 100 million handsets by the end of 2022 and completing the same milestone within the 2023 calendar year.

To achieve this, realme is counting on a comprehensive product development strategy that will see it expand its offerings in two ways. With the recent launch of its flagship GT Series devices, dubbed as ‘flagship-killer’ phone, realme is poised to compete at mid-to-high-end segments. The company is also evolving its vision of building out a full-fledged AIoT ecosystem for global users within the next five years. To this end, realme has unveiled its1+5+T strategy: 1 being the mobile phone, 5 for True Wireless Stereo earphones, wearables, TVs, tablets, laptops, and T stands for realme’s AIoT brand TechLife. realme believes in its ability to lead users to a technologically enhanced lifestyle in a way that is affordable and sustainable at the same time. 

With an audacious vision and courage to take on the world, realme is poised to break down barriers in a competitive environment. 

realme GT Master Edition Series to launch globally on August 18

In celebration of the brand’s recent achievements both locally and globally, realme will launch its 100M-milestone product: the realme GT Master Edition Series, along with new categories on August 18.

The realme GT Master Edition Series is designed by famous Japanese industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa, who explored new smartphone design elements in smartphone history. realme sees GT Master Edition Series as the most high-end flagship to celebrate its 100M sales achievement.

realme Watch 3 Review | All Around Fitness Smartwatch and More #realmeWatch3

Published

on

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.

Hardware

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.

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.

Weather Watch

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.

Conclusion

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
