Realme TV features (expected)
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 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 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.
Realme Watch features (expected)
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 rumoured 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.
In terms of activity tracking, the Realme Watch will have tracking for 14 sports modes including football, basketball, aerobics, badminton, yoga, treadmill, running, and biking, among others. The smartwatch will also have a ’24/7 Health Assistant’ built-in with real-time heart rate monitoring, as well as blood oxygen level monitoring (SpO2). Further, the teaser page mentions the Realme Link app which will be the control centre for the Realme Watch. It is available only on the Google Play store as of now.
Realme launch event
The Realme digital event will be held on May 25 at 12:30pm. It will be streamed on the company’s social media channels including Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. This event will mark the launch of the Realme TV and Realme Watch. Realme has teased the launch of the TV and watch on Twitter through its Realme Link account as well.
According to Realme, the brand has “hit a major milestone of earning 35 million worldwide users, out of which 21 million users are based in India”. So it is clear that India is a very important market for them. How well they compete in the TV space is something we will know when we check out the TV.
