5G hasn’t really gained momentum in India and recent reports by the country’s parliamentary panel on IT suggests it is nowhere near nation-wide deployment. However, this hasn’t stopped smartphone manufacturers from launching 5G-enabled handsets. Last year, realme brought the realme X50 Pro as a 5G flagship to India. Cut back to 2021, it has recently launched realme X7 series in the country. Now, the company’s head Madhav Sheth says that all the devices launching above ₹20,000(~$275) in 2021 will have 5G support.
In an interview with Indian Express, realme India and Europe CEO Madhav Sheth says 50% of realme products launching in 2021 will support 5G connectivity. And as mentioned above, the company seems to target users with 5G-enabled devices above ₹20k segment but with democratized prices and price-performance value.
As for the 5G rollout, although giants like Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel are ready with the latter conducting Advanced Tests, the Govt. is yet to conduct the auctions for the 5G spectrum. realme recently brought the realme X7 5G as low as ₹19,999 in India. This region of 5G devices was unexplored until Moto broke the market with Moto G 5G.
Later, Xiaomi brought its Mi 10i, and several other companies like Motorola and Nokia are now planning to go even deeper. As such, the race for bombarding 5G devices is catching the heat in 2021.
Madhav also adds that technology like 5G will help trigger faster connectivity in areas like education and healthcare and smart homes. He says that the next-gen network will play a pivotal role in building a smart lifestyle for the people. Speaking of which, the company has said that it will launch over 100 Smart AIoT products this year.
