realme launches new semi-automatic washing machines in India

realme has introduced semi-automatic washing machines as part of its TechLife portfolio, after the launch of its first washing machine in September last year. According to the manufacturer, the new washing machines will meet the increased need for antibacterial, energy-efficient, as well as powerful home appliances.

realme’s latest washing machines are available in two sizes: 8 kg and 8.5 kg. The silver ion wash in the washing machine inhibits the growth of bacteria and microbes on clothes. The washing machine’s exterior body is made of highly reliable plastic that resists rust and corrosion. Each time you wash your clothes, the machine has a 1400 RPM spin cycle, an Air-Dry mode, a Hard Water Wash mode, and even a collar scrubber to make sure they get clean.

According to the firm, the washing machines are tailored to Indian conditions. The washing machines also have hard water wash features. The semi-automatic, top load line-up has a sizeable capacity and jet stream technology for deeper and more consistent cleaning. They also got a BEE 5-star rating, which means that they will be more energy efficient and use less power.
