realme Smartphone Lineup Guide (Philippines)

Jullian Robin Sibi 0

realme Philippines basically did a revamp of its whole lineup this year! From the entry-level with the realme C11 until the flagship realme X3 SuperZoom, there’s a phone for you! With that in mind, it’s about time to update my Realme smartphone lineup guide!

Despite our current situation, realme still manages to sell 10 million smartphones in the first four months of 2020! This helped the company maintain the seventh spot in Counterpoint’s list of top global smartphone brands in terms of shipments in the first quarter of 2020! With that, realme now has 35 MILLION global users.

That’s not stopping anytime soon since realme BASICALLY did an OVERHAUL of its smartphone lineup in the Philippines. If you’re really on a tight budget, you can go for either the realme C11, realme C3 or the realme 5i. Want the best midrange phones that the company has to offer? Then go for one of the phones in the realme 6 Series! If you’re going for the best that the company has in the Philippines, then go for the realme X3 SuperZoom!

NOTE: The phones in this list are the ones OFFICIALLY launched by realme Philippines. These are readily available through its concept stores, authorized retailers, and its official online stores. Other phones like the realme X50 Pro that pop up here are imported from other countries.
