The country’s no. 1 smartphone brand for Q3 2021 delivered successful launch sales for its newest 8 Series smartphone with a Helio G96 chip and 120Hz display.
Manila, Philippines. November 17, 2021: realme, the Philippines’ number one smartphone brand as of Q3 2021, continues to achieve exceptional growth in the smartphone category, this time with its latest offering to complete the widely successful 8 Series line-up: the realme 8i.
Launched via a livestream event on the realme Philippines’ Facebook page and YouTube channel on November 16, the realme 8i is designed to deliver an #InfinitelySmooth experience in all aspects.
The realme 8i then made its exclusive early-bird selling on Lazada hours after its launch and was received very warmly by the realme Squad, having sold out on the platform in just 35 minutes after its launch. This success comes on the heels of the previous top-selling performances of the other realme 8 Series devices: the 108MP camera-equipped realme 8 Pro, the reliable gaming companion realme 8, and the 5G-capable realme 8 5G, all launched earlier this year.
“We at realme believe in diversifying our technology to better serve the ever-changing digital needs of Filipinos.

Maraming salamat po!,” adds Huang.
