Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has announced that the firm would be among the first handset makers to launch 5G products this year. “#5GisReal… Straight out of meeting room with Sky Li. Glad to share with you our latest R&D updates: #realme will be among the first brands to bring 5G products globally this year. And we are determined to bring the best of technology to India as early as possible,” Sheth tweeted late on Thursday.
This comes almost a month after the smartphone manufacturer said it would launch 5G handsets once the network is ready in China and India.
The company’s latest phone is the Realme X which launched with a Snapdragon 710 chipset, 8GB RAM and a dual-camera setup with a 48MP camera and a 5MP depth sensor.
The Realme X is expected to launch in India in the H2 2019 and it takes on the Redmi K20. Earlier, Realme confirmed that the Realme X would launch in India with a different chipset and it could be the Snapdragon 730 that powers the Redmi K20. Xiaomi recently said the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro phones would be launched in India before July 15.
