First Realme TV coming in quarter two

Realme has confirmed plans to bring smart TVs to India. The first Realme smart TV will launch in the second quarter of the year. Sheth said that the Realme TV will be customised for India. We can expect the smart TV to run on company’s own Realme UI.

It will be interesting to see how Realme positions its smart TVs in such a price sensitive market like India. Xiaomi’s Mi TVs are already ruling the market with their value-for-money smart TVs. According to IDC, Xiaomi is currently the top smart TV brand in the country.
