Realme Philippines will launch on November 29, 2018

We knew with certainty that Realme was coming to the Philippines, but we didn’t know when. The company created several local social media accounts in preparation for its launch.

Fast forward to today, what we’ve been waiting for is finally here — Realme Philippines will debut on November 29, 2018.

The brand made a name for itself in India by releasing value-for-money smartphones. They hope to replicate the same success here in the Philippines.

What phones should we expect?

Unfortunately, they’re still mum as to what smartphones they’ll release, but we’re hoping its the Realme 2 and the Realme 2 Pro.

The Realme 2 was a huge success in India. It is priced competitively at INR8,990 (PHP6,600), and comes with a 6.2-inch HD+ IPS display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 3/4GB RAM, 32/64GB storage, and a large 4,230 mAh battery.

The phone also has a 13MP + 2MP camera at the back and an 8MP shooter in front.

The Realme 2 Pro, on the other hand, is priced slightly higher at INR13,990 (or roughly PHP10,200). The phone comes with a 6.3-inch full HD display with a dewdrop notch, an octa-core Snapdragon 660, up to 8GB RAM, up to 128GB storage, and a 3,500 mAh battery. It has a 16MP + 2MP rear camera module, and a 16MP selfie shooter.
