Realme debuted the Indian smartphone market as s sub-brand of OPPO. However, it very soon got separated as an independent company and also expanded to several other Asian markets including its home country China. While it started its journey as an online-centric brand, the company is now targetting to expand offline sales to 150 cities by the end of this year. As of now, Realme has partnered with established retailers to sell its smartphones.
However, the latest tweet from the company’s CEO hints about the opening of its first ever flagship store in the country. The announcement came right after the launch of the OPPO’s first ever flagship store in India. OPPO has recently opened its exclusive store in Hyderabad which is also the first for the company in the whole of South Asia. As of now, there isn’t information available about the Realme’s exclusive store in the country.
Congrats to @oppomobileindia for the flagship showroom. Happy to meet @amitbhawani here and big thanks for many valuable feedbacks on @realmemobiles future plans.
