In November 2020, affirming realme’s rapid growth as an innovative smartphone brand, realme was also named by Counterpoint research as the world’s fastest smartphone brand with sales of 50 million units in only 9 quarters.
Commenting on Fast Company’s recognition of realme as one of the 50 Most Innovative Companies in China, realme founder and CEO Li Bingzhong said, “There are two ways to innovate: One way is the research and development of high-tech, so as to have the innovation ability in high-precision fields, and the other way is to greatly reduce the cost of mature or about to mature technology and popularise the technology. realme is taking the second path.”
