Realme has a course to sell its products. This first bring them to the online marketplace and then gradually pushes them to reach brick and mortar stores. Well, the latest device to hit the offline store is Realme TV, which relaunched in May after days of lifting the lockdown. Reality TV has technically launched Oppo’s subsidiary in the home entertainment space as part of efforts to make itself a lifestyle brand. Realme pioneered a new 1 + 4 + N strategy on how to launch products in the market.
If you are preventing yourself from buying Realme TV through an online platform, partly because you want to try it first hand, the Smart TV will be available at 1,250 offline stores. Realme says that these stores belong to the “Royal Club”, a cheesy name given to various offline outlets that will help the brand with its offline impression. Realme has a strong presence in the internet sector, but its offline identity is not like Xiaomi, Oppo, or Vivo.
So, how much does Realme TV cost?
There are two variants, the 32-inch HD-ready model costs Rs 12,999 while the 43-inch full HD variant costs Rs 21,999. Both models will be available for purchase online.
Now, let’s talk about the three features that make Realme TV a definite purchase for its desired price.
First, Realme TV has a standard 32-inch model under Rs 15,000 in India, which is value for money. Like the competition, the Realme TV 32-inch model also offers 720p resolution. On the other hand, the 43-inch model is the full HD version up to 1080p for content. The price of this device is also Rs 21,999. The bottom line is that you get a lot of features at a low price with Realme TV.
Realme TV runs on Android TV based on Android 9 Pie, which means that you can run almost every app available for TV. It has apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, Google Play Store, and many more. With around 8GB of storage (and 1GB of RAM), you won’t feel like you’re running out of space for many apps that you might have to download. There is also support for external storage via the USB-A port.
The display panel on Realme TV support HDR10 +, which is really impressive for the price. There are not many TVs in the market at this price that offer HDR10 +. Additionally, Dolby Audio is also available on Realme TV.
