PHILIPPINES – realme, the country’s no. 1 smartphone brand for Q2 2021, once again proves its mettle in the local tech arena with a successful launch week for its two latest products: the realme GT Master Edition, and the realme Book.
Following their Philippine debut on September 23, these two products performed well in the market, with thousands of Filipinos placing their orders via exclusive e-commerce partner Lazada, and in over 5,000 realme stores and partner dealers nationwide.
The realme GT Master Edition, the brand’s latest flagship offering, was a hit among realme fans as proven by its sold-out status on Lazada in less than 24 hours since its launch. It also generated impressive results from the Lazada Sulit Sweldo Sale on September 30, as well as from the brand’s first offline selling weekend on October 2 to 3, making it the fastest realme smartphone to sell out on its first weekend.
Coming in two stunning colors, the realme GT Master Edition showcases the brand’s mastery of design and product innovation. The Voyager Grey sports the industry’s first vegan leather concave design by internationally acclaimed industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa, while the Daybreak Blue variant takes inspiration from the colors of dawn with a holographic back panel. Under the hood, it boasts a Snapdragon 778G 5G processor, 120Hz Super AMOLED display, 65W SuperDart Charge, and 64MP Primary Camera, making the realme GT Master Edition the ideal option for those looking for a premium and stylish smartphone with specs that are tough to beat.
Meanwhile, the brand’s first-ever laptop, the realme Book, also underscored its promising debut performance within the category, as it generated a staggering amount of pre-orders for both i3 and i5 variants, just hours within its official launch on Lazada.
The realme Book is lauded by the realme Squad—fans, media, and influencers alike—for its slim and lightweight design, high-resolution 2K Full-Vision Display, and 54Wh large battery with 65W Super-Fast Charge, among many other notable features, all within an accessible price range. In addition, it runs on the latest 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor in i3 and i5 variants, and is equipped with Stereo Sound by DTS (Powerful Bass Sound by HARMAN). It comes in two stylish colors: Real Silver and Real Blue.
The debut success of realme’s latest offerings once again proves the brand’s ability to disrupt the industry with high-caliber tech products that stay within an accessible price point. “We are grateful for the Squad’s continued support and trust for our latest line-up of premium yet affordable products. Rest assured, the brand is committed to breaking the line that divides affordability and premium quality, to provide the best digital experience to every Filipino”, shares Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing.
