Neon Xie, brand director of Realme in South-East Asia, yesterday announced their entry into Bangladesh's market at a press conference held at a city hotel.
He said they have already set up a mobile manufacturing plant in Gazipur.
"As a tech trendy brand, Realme now commits to bringing the trendy tech-lifestyle to the young people in Bangladesh," Xie said.

"Realme possesses deep insight of the global smartphone market and the needs of young users. It has become the benchmark of products with outstanding performance and fashionable designs," he added.
Officials said the brand helped popularise 5G technology and brings affordable and trendy 5G smartphones for the youth.
Realme provides Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) products with the latest designs and comprehensive function at each price segment.
At present, there is a monthly demand for 20-25 lakh mobile phones in Bangladesh.
