Smartphone brand realme was found on Friday to have withdrawn from OPPO’s official online mall. There are currently no smartphone models related to realme on OPPO’s e-commerce platform, and all previous links have expired.
Founded in August 2018, realme belongs to OPPO Electronics Corp., Ltd., together with other two smartphone brands – OPPO and OnePlus. Previously, the products of realme and OnePlus had their own tags on the OPPO Mall, and there were also links to their own official websites. Now, no realme products can be found within the OPPO Mall, and the brand section has been removed, while OnePlus has not been affected. The official website of realme can still be accessed normally.
According to domestic tech industry tipster with Weibo username “Digital Chat Station,” realme will now go its own way, planning to launch foldable smartphones, high-performance pad products and in-display front-camera flagship models.
The withdrawal of realme from the OPPO Mall might be a bid for more independence by the brand. Many realme products have been favored by users, and its market popularity has greatly improved.
The realme GT2 Master Edition smartphone is set to be unveiled in July. According to the national network certificate information, the model is 8.2 mm thick and weighs 199 g, with a 6.7-inch 2412×1080 120Hz AMOLED screen. It is equipped with a 4880mAh battery, supports 100W fast charging, and has a front 16MP camera and 50MP + 50MP + 2MP cameras in rear. It is expected that this model will be equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ chipset.
