Watch: How Realme phones are made
Apart from the weekly sales, the company is also said to be planning to open exclusive experience stores in India. Reports suggest that Realme could open the store in the second half of 2019, and unveil the sequel to the Realme 2 in the first quarter (Q1, 2019). The reason behind opening the exclusive offline stores is due to a new FDI policy in place from February 1, where no company will be able to sell more than 25 percent of their devices exclusively via e-commerce platforms.
