Regarding  the new achievement, realme India CEO Madhav Sheth said:

Admittedly, all achievements are inseparable from your support. With your rock-solid support, we have grown tremendously, despite the challenges of the ongoing pandemic. I would like to raise a toast to our partners, employees, media, and fans who have stood by us, in this journey of a lifetime.

In the past three years, we have never stopped exploring and have always prioritized bringing the most cutting-edge products to the Indian market. With this initial intention and efforts, we have become the No. 1 5G smartphone brand in India. As the first mobile phone company to bring 5G mobile phones to the Indian market, our goal is to democratize 5G mobile phones so that every Indian person can enjoy the pleasure of the 5G era.

He said that after the launch of realme GT 5G series later this month, realme has plans for multiple GT 5G products this quarter to promote 5G adoption in India. “With the launch of the realme GT 5G series, we are going to disrupt the premium segment, which is our new ambition after our three years of success,” he added.
