The realme Squad is in for an amazing treat as the country’s no. 1 smartphone for Q1 and Q2 2021 continues its highly anticipated Global Fan Fest celebration this whole month of August. With an exciting roster of events, promo campaigns, and other initiatives, realme aims to show its gratitude for the continuous support and loyalty it has received from its Filipino audience.
Since its entry to the local market in 2018, realme has undeniably gone on to become the fastest-growing smartphone brand in the Philippines. The brand has achieved tremendous year-over-year growth and continues to disrupt the industry with its impressive lineup of smartphones and AIOT products. This year, realme further cemented its position as the no. 1 smartphone brand in the country as it emerged as the top smartphone vendor for two consecutive quarters according to separate reports from marketing research firms Canalys and Counterpoint Research.

“In just less than three years, realme has managed to achieve unimaginable success in the Philippines, and we could not have done this without the incredible support of our fans and community. Knowing that we have the realme Squad with us every step of the way pushes us to outdo ourselves and reach greater heights”, shares Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing. “We are truly grateful for your loyalty, and we hope that our Global Fan Fest this month will spread joy and optimism amid these challenging times,” adds Huang.
With the theme Dare To Be You, this year’s Global Fan Fest serves as a reminder to today’s youth to be unapologetically real despite the noises that surround us. With this in mind, realme is set to roll out various initiatives and events this month that the Squad can look forward to.
