Realme unveils C55 smartphones, price starts at Rs.9,999
Kolkata: Technology brand Realme on Friday launched its addition to the C-series-named Realme C55, starting from Rs. 9,999.
The company said the phone promises to be a new benchmark for an entry-level champion with a 64MP camera and 33W charging.
"With its sleek design, impressive performance, and outstanding features, the realme C55 is the perfect choice for those who demand more from their smartphones," Sreehari, Product Manager at realme Global (India and Europe), said.
"In West Bengal Realme's mainline market share is 11%, with the highest contribution coming from the East region. Realme intends to add 22 more service centers in West Bengal to its existing 27 by the end of 2023," he said.
He said: "Realme currently has 527 service centers in India that cater to mobiles and AIOT products. However, the company aims to expand its service network and increase the number of service centers to 727 by the end of 2023."
When asked about the company's 6G plans, Sreehari, Product Manager at Realme Global (India and Europe), told IBNS: "6G development is something we are going to work out. One big thing in India is that a large section of the population is still using 2G and 3G. We are also aiming to bring these customers to the 4G platform first."
Interestingly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently announced India's 6G mission, which aims to concentrate efforts towards developing next-generation technology in India.
As part of this initiative, a 6G testbed project has been introduced to enable research on novel network technologies.
The Bharat 6G project has been initiated by the government and an apex council has been designated to oversee its progress. India is the second largest telecommunications market worldwide with 1.2 billion digital subscribers.
