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.
