Last week, Realme expanded beyond its primary market of smartphones and announced a new smartwatch and smart TV. The Realme Smart TV was announced in two models: 32-inch HD and 43-inch Full HD. And now, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that they will launch a third 55-inch model in India soon.
Sheth was talking to IANS in an interview where he revealed the company's future plans related to the smart TV segment. He described the launch of two models as the beginning of their exploration. The overall idea is to offer smart TVs in different size options so that they can match as many users' preferences and requirements as possible.
He added that 55-inch is considered as the premium and flagship display size when it comes to TVs. This is the reason Realme has chosen this particular size as their next release. The interview does not mention any specific release timeline other than that it is expected to happen soon. The upcoming TV is said to offer "ground-breaking experiences" to users which means we could be looking at a smart TV packed with all the high-end features like a 4K display panel.
Sheth separately tweeted that Realme Smart TV has become "India's fastest-selling smart TV ever". He revealed that they managed to sell over 15,000 units within 10 minutes of the sale. The first flash sale took place two days ago and if you missed it or could not get your hands on one, the next flash sale has been scheduled for June 9th.
