Chinese smartphone manufacturer Realme on Friday announced to launch its much-anticipated TV and smartwatch in India on May 25. According to the company, it will host an online event that will be streamed via Realme’s YouTube channel as well as its social media platforms.
“The wait is finally over, the party is about to get started with Realme! As we are ready to introduce new members of our family – the Realme TV and the Realme Watch along with other accessories,” the company said in a statement.
In a media invite, Realme has detailed the event will take place at 12:30 pm on Monday, May 25. This will be an online event, much like the previous one for the company’s Narzo series launch. A recorded message will be live-streamed on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter simultaneously for users to catch up with the real-time updates from the event.
The Realme TV was recently spotted in a leaked image showing the screen size. The image showed the TV in its packaging in a warehouse, with a screen size of 108cm printed on it. This means the Realme TV will be released in at least a 43-inch screen size. As per the report, a hazy Netflix logo can also be seen on the box, suggesting that the Realme TV will have official Netflix support. The Android TV and Google Assistant logos were also reportedly present on the box. Additionally, two Realme TV models – 43-inch and 32-inch – were spotted on the Bluetooth SIG certification site last month.
As of now, it is unclear what resolution will be offered at the 43-inch screen size. Realme could offer both full-HD (1,920×1,080 pixels) or ultra-HD/4K options.
The launch of the Reame Watch was recently teased by the company with a short video through its Realme Link Twitter handle. The Realme Watch is rumored to have a 1.4-inch TFT display with 320×320 pixels resolution. It may have a 160mAh battery and offer 24-hour heart rate monitoring. It is said to come with an IP68-certified build and run on a proprietary operating system.
Realme has also announced to host an event in China on May 25 where it plans to unveil eight new products. The company has not mentioned what exactly it is going to unveil but the poster shared by the Chinese phone maker on Weibo includes a smartphone, a power bank, and a true wireless earbud.
The phone in the poster has a quad-rear camera set up in a vertical orientation while the power bank has a regular USB port as well as what seems to be a USB Type-C port, along with some LED lights.
