When Realme Philippines told consumers to “discover real value” in the Realme 3, we didn’t know it would be this one heck of a value.
OPPO sub-brand Realme has launched the Realme 3, its latest budget smartphone, in India. The Realme 3 is a well-specced, well-priced phone that’s set to go on sale from March 12. It will be officially revealed March 19th in the Philippines.
Realme is one of the fastest-growing smartphone brands here and overseas. The company announced today the Realme 3, its latest budget smartphone, at a press conference in India, just in time to go up against the Samsung Galaxy M20 and the Redmi Note 7.
We reported yesterday that Realme’s next phone, believed to be the Realme 3, for the Philippine market may arrive as early as March. It turns out we were right.
Realme has made quite a stir in the Philippine market since its official launch in the country in November last year.
Realme Philippines already has many partner stores nationwide, but it doesn’t have any of its own just yet. Well, that’s going to change soon.
One of the best budget phones on the market right now just got better. Realme has announced the Realme C1 2019 for the Indian market, which addresses one of the common complaints people had about last year’s C1 — lack of memory.
Realme entered the local smartphone market late last year. And just a couple of months later, the OPPO sub-brand took to social media to announce that the Realme C1, the company’s first and only offering in the Philippines (for the meantime, at least), is now available offline nationwide.

We’ll remember 2018 as the year when Xiaomi and Huawei sub-brand Honor returned to the Philippines. It’s also a time when Realme entered the local market, a development that could give smartphone companies known for offering value-for-money products a run for their money.
The Realme C1 recently launched in the Philippines with a bargain-basement official price tag of P5,990 (around $113). Which, as many of you know, is incredibly low for what it offers.
Realme Philippines officially debuted the Realme C1 yesterday, November 29. The budget blower will be available beginning next week, December 5, for as low as P5,490 or $105. Notably, however, the Realme 2 Pro, the company’s flagship phone, may have been there during the announcement, but only on the sidelines; it was not launched.
You read the title right. That’s with a caveat, though: To get the Realme C1 for only P5,490 (roughly $104), you have to buy it during a flash sale happening on Lazada Philippines from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on December 5.
So much has happened since the establishment of OPPO sub-brand Realme that you’d think it’s more than six months old. It has already released three smartphones and entered five markets — India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Soon, it will be in the Philippines. And come November 28, it will launch the Realme U1.
Realme Philippines will officially make its debut in the country on November 29, as we had reported, with the Realme C1 sure to be one of the first to be offered. A day before that, November 28th, the Realme U1 is expected to launch in India and will be the first smartphone powered by MediaTek’s new Helio P70 processor.
Now, it can be said with certainty: Realme will officially make its debut in the Philippines on November 29. Or just a day after the OPPO sub-brand announces the upcoming Realme U1 smartphone in India, if the rumors pan out in the first place.
