Thanx for reply.


Where is realme 4? Why they directly jumped from 3 to 5?

Jio & Airtel

Number 4 is considered unlucky in China, since it is homophonous with the word death. This is why Chinese phone manufacturing companies skip from 3 to 5 and avoid 4. Even OnePlus went from Op3 to Op5.

Because 4 is an unlucky number in China.


4 means death in Chinese, so most of the Chinese phone manufacturers skip the number 4.
