While Realme operates independently from the parent company Oppo, it still shares resources with them. It has its own marketing departments and R&D as well. Recently, Chung Hsiang-wei, CCO at Realme Taiwan said that the company is looking to “build up its own ecosystem and production lines.” However, the spin-off would rely on the company’s growing business.
