realme has been known to be a smartphone brand that appeals to the crowd that prefers to invest less into a smartphone but would like good features regardless. Today, they seem to be doing well by themselves in Malaysia with the value and performance appeal strategy.
They had recently announced that they have brought in the GT Master Edition smartphone, with the moniker of “flagship killer”, aimed to take a hit at the has-been brand OnePlus.
