This achievement shows how the Sri Lankan youth are increasingly turning to be realme fans, driving the brand towards new milestones of this nature. What is important to note is that the way fans have explored and engaged with the brand within such a short time period since its initial arrival in the country in 2020. This is clearly due to the fact that the ready availability of high-end mobile technologies in the realme phones while being sold at very affordable prices to the youth. We thank realme fans and buyers for placing faith on us and also appreciate the support extended to us by our business partners enabling us to achieve this performance record.”
