realme ramps up ‘Make in India’ initiative, partners Khy Electronics to make AIoT products locally

realme today announced that it has partnered with Khy Electronics to manufacture a diverse range of AIOT products and accessories including realme Watch 2 Pro, realme Buds Wireless, and the upcoming realme 4K Smart TV Google Stick in India. realme said that it will continue to expand the manufacturing ecosystem, support the ‘Make in India’ initiative and enhance employment opportunities.

realme diversified into hearables and wearables categories in 2019 and 2020 and has seen massive growth in the segments, since its foray. “The initiative re-affirms the brand’s commitment to make India a key manufacturing hub for smartphones, smart TVs, and other AIOT product lines,” said the company.

All realme smartphones sold in India are 100% ‘Made in India’ and recently, in August, realme has started exportation to Nepal. More than 60-70% of realme smartphone supplies, like screens, batteries, and internal structures, are currently purchased and manufactured in India.

realme said that is also encouraging more of its suppliers and partners to open local factories in India and contribute more to our country’s economy. With realme’s AIOT product lines, realme in the past has teamed up with Bhagwati Products Limited and Videotex International Pvt. Ltd. as OEM partners to start local manufacture of realme Smart TV 32, 43, and 55 inches, respectively

Commenting on the announcement, Madhav Sheth, Vice President, realme and CEO, realme India, Europe & Latin America said:

We are delighted to share that realme will enhance its production capabilities and delight users with Make In India products. Our partnership with Khy Electronics will empower us to meet emerging requirements swiftly. India is a focus market for realme and our efforts are always targeted to prioritize consumer needs and equip them with trendsetting technologies. We will continue to cater to the Indian market with consistent collaboration with the ecosystem and make users future-ready.
