Realme: Brand Overview
To reiterate, Realme kick-started as a sub-brand of OPPO back in 2018. However, as of 2021, it operates independently and has launched its own Realme UI too—although it is heavily based on Oppo’s ColorOS.
Realme phones are loved by their consumer because of their high-end specs at a low cost. With the tagline “Dare to Leap”, Realme phones are primarily focused on youths, while its newer offerings are presented as great options for different demographics. Similarly, the company is also an early adopter in the smartphone industry bringing in new exciting features on its budget and mid-range phones.
In 2020, Realme also entered the accessories segment by launching its power-banks, wireless TWS earphone, and fitness band. In addition, the company has also launched Smart TVs, Smartwatches, and other IoT products in May 2020.
Realme in Nepal
Realme has been officially present in Nepal for some years now. It entered the market in 2019 with Jagadamba Mobiles Pvt. Ltd. serving as the national distributor (ND). However, Realme later appointed Pashupati Tradeline Pvt. Ltd as its new ND. The company has launched a lot of products including smartphones, smartwatches, and other AIoT products until now.
However, Realme Nepal consistently took the heat from the domestic smartphone market for its extravagant pricing policies. Realme phones were significantly overpriced in Nepal compared to neighboring markets like India and China. This prompted Realme India to look after the company’s operation in Nepal.
A new beginning
Now, Realme has re-entered the Nepali market in August 2021 with Shanker Group as the new official distributor. Shanker Group is not new to such ventures, having managed over 30 different companies across 14 sectors.
With Shanker Group, Realme Nepal plans to make the pricing more competitive and use it to penetrate further into the Nepali market. It aims to become the second-biggest smartphone brand in Nepal by 2022. All of these plans will be looked over by Madhav Sheth, who also leads the company in India and Europe.
Initially, Shanker Group has brought four smartphones. Some of these were already available in the Nepali market, but their prices have been revised. We will have to wait a little longer for Narzo and GT lineup to launch in Nepal. With that out of the way, let’s take at all the Realme phones that you can currently buy in Nepal, along with their specs and official price.
