The realme brand continued its roll in the Kenyan market with the unveiling of two new devices this morning.
At a virtual launch event streamed online, realme unveiled the realme 6, a headlining mid-range smartphone that is expected to shake the local smartphone market, the realme C11, an entry-level smartphone and the realme Band, a fitness-focused smart band.
Also having a presence at the launch was the realme C3 which has been selling in the local market since the start of the month when realme entered the market.
The realme C11 opens the floodgates to realme’s world for most Kenyans with entry-level features and pricing to match while the realme C3 offers a step up from the C11.
The realme 6 stays at the pinnacle of realme’s offerings in Kenya at the moment. The brand does have another series at its very top, the realme X but it might be a while before we hear anything to do with that.
All the three smartphones are powered by MediaTek’s Helio G series processors.
The realme 6 is going for Kshs 30,000. It starts selling on September 2nd.
The realme C13, which has already been available, as earlier revealed, is going for Kshs 14,000.
The realme C11 hits the local market’s sweet spot of Kshs 10,000. It starts selling on August 28th across the country.
The realme Band is priced at Kshs 3,000, bringing much-needed competition to Huawei’s Band 4e and Xiaomi’s last generation smart band, the Mi Band 4, both of which go for around the same price.
Buyers of the realme 6 are getting a free realme Band.
