Back in June 2019, Sheth had confirmed that Realme will be one of the first brands to bring 5G products globally in 2020. It would be interesting to see how Realme prices its 5G phones and given its India-centric strategy, Realme could actually drive sales of affordable 5G handsets in India while other brands too join the 5G handset party.
Realme is not the only one eyeing affordable 5G handsets. Qualcomm has also said that 11 smartphone brands including Oppo, Redmi, Vivo, Motorola, HMD Global and LG Electronics will use this new integrated Snapdragon 7 Series 5G mobile platform in their future 5G mobile devices.
Realme is said to launch 5G smartphones in India as soon as the 5G networks are ready to roll out. But the company has not confirmed whether we will see 5G phones in 2020 or not.
