A new smart TV and smartwatch for Realme
With the Realme TV and its own smartwatch, which rumor has it could be called the Realme Watch, the company is further penetrating the technology market. Whether it can take up the fight with the established manufacturers remains to be seen. What we already a little about the new gadgets thanks to the leaks we will show you here.
Realme smartwatch news is not courtesy of a leak, but it comes right from the horses mouth. The smart wearable was teased by the CEO of Realme India, Madhav Sheth, who wore it during a question and answer video.
XDA-developers was able to gather more information about the smartwatch via certification lists. The watch will have a TFT touch screen color display (1.4-inch) and according to the video it will have a square shape with rounded edges. The watch is supposed to get its juice from a 160mAh battery, which should keep it running for a whole week. In addition to a 24-hour heart rate monitor, the smartwatch is also to be equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and has an IP68 certification, which makes it resistant to water and dust. The smartwatch is said to be without GPS.
Only last month, the online magazine Digit found references to Realme’s first smart television. According to the rumours, the TV had appeared on the website of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The smart TV was listed there as the “Realme TV 43”, while the listing indicates an LED panel. It can therefore be assumed that Realme will introduce an affordable television with a 43-inch LED panel on May 25. According to the source, the TV will probably be equipped with Android TV and have a few unique features.
New Realme products will be launched in India first
When the devices will also find their way into the market here in Europe cannot be said yet. The launch will first take place in India on May 25 via an online event. Within the tweet, Madhav did not write explicitly about the TV or the smartwatch. A closer look at the event teaser image in the tweet, however, reveals a shimmering square in the background that resembles an LCD panel. In the front, however, you can see the Realme smartwatch in the shadow.
