Baghdad, Iraq, February 20th, 2023 – realme, the world’s fastest-growing smartphone brand, is leading the industry with a 240W smartphone charging record and offers fast charging for all. Based on the newest report from Counterpoint, realme is holding true to the ‘Dare to leap’ motto, being the first in fast-charging innovations. As a young brand, realme is able to push the boundaries further and become the first brand to introduce a 240W-capable smartphone in the mainland, China, which offers the fastest-charging power under Type-C standard. The company is also introducing 240W globally with the the launch for realme GT3 on the 28th of Feb.
Leap From a Popularizer to an Industry Leader
Established with the mission of empowering the young consumers with leap-forward technology and design, realme continues to realise and commercialise innovation in fast charging technology for their smartphones. For example, realme succeeded in providing 65W charging technology to realme X7 in 2020, making fast charging more accessible to everyone. Followed by providing an innovative breakthrough with the world’s fastest 150W charging technology to realme GT Neo3 in 2022, and this year realme is preparing 240W charging technology for the global market through realme GT3 .
Despite a young brand, realme plays a key role in making fast charging available to all. Smartphone industry has been demanding higher wattage from time to time to reduce charging times to an hour or less. This leads to realme’s innovation to provide fast charging technology in all price segments.
realme is introducing for the first-time its fast charging capabilities in sub-$150 smartphones and able to grab a market-leading 85% sales penetration of $100-$149 smartphone portfolio and features fast charging capability in 2022. realme was also the first OEM to launch a 65W capable smartphone, the realme Narzo 20 Pro, under the wholesale price of $150 in 2020. This follows realme’s long-standing history of introducing the latest technologies at lower price segments, pushing the smartphone industry to adopt them at a mass level.
During this time, realme ranked second in the mid-high to entry premium segment ($250-$599) for 65W capable smartphones in 2022. This means realme is also offering market-leading technology at higher price bands.
Aside from that, every step of realme in product development will be based on the Spire Strategy, which means that every new product created will be equipped with at least one of the leap-forward technologies.
realme is always focused on making standout products that fans love, with more focused design technology. Through Spire Strategy, realme will improve the product experience, where each product will be supported by superior design, performance, and experience. The three foundations will be the stable foundation of this ‘tower’ — of the entire product experience, from technology to design, to performance and more.
240W: Industry Highest Charging Standard
The 240W figure represents the highest standard of fast charging technology in the industry today. The innovation that realme will present is also the fastest 240W charging technology globally that uses a standard USB Type-C interface.
Innovation in fast-charging technology has a great impact on the overall smartphone industry. Advances in technology, especially in the smartphone industry, has become a top priority since smartphones are now able to combine many devices with different functions that were previously available separately. With more and more functions, of course, the use becomes more intense, which results in directly proportional battery usage. The presence of charging technology innovation, such as what realme continues to do will balance the next needs.
Consumers are more concerned about the time saved and how quickly smartphones can be charged up. Earlier, it was normal to have the device plugged in for more than two hours and wait for the device to get charged up. But now, there is an increase in content consumption and consumers also prefer being connected without long downtimes caused by charging their phones. The increase in power-delivering capabilities has reduced the charging time significantly, with more than 100W capable charging technology that can achieve full charge in 20-25 minutes. realme’s latest industry-first 240W power output is taking fast charging to the next level.
Madhav Sheth, VP of realme, said, “realme is known as a brand that brings leap-forward tech more accessible to everyone. This time, realme proves that we can do more than that by being top player in industry in terms of fast-charging technology and penetration rate in all segments. ”
realme will launch realme GT3 smartphone to the global market at the Mobile World Congress 2023 event in Barcelona, Spain at the end of February. This smartphone will be the fastest in the world that carries 240W charging technology and can be enjoyed by many people. The presence of the realme GT3 will disrupt the smartphone market, which will directly spur players in the industry to dare to play at a higher level.
