Realme has already confirmed that it will soon debut in the TV market in India. Although the details are not out and the company has not yet started teasing it, a leaked packaging of the TV seems to have hinted on what’s there to come. The leak comes in the form of an image showing the Realme TV packaged and ready to ship in one of the facilities. In the image shared by MySmartprice, one of the box shows 108cm (or 43inch) mentioned on the top right corner, clearly giving away at least one of the screen sizes of the product.
This comes shortly after the TV was spotted on Bluetooth SIG website. According to the BIS listing, Realme TV will sport 43-inch display with LED panel.
There’s no official word on when we can see the TV hitting the shelves, but since the TVs look ready to be shipped, Realme might not take much time in officially revealing it.
The Realme TV has been seen on Android certification site for the Indian market before. The listing confirmed Realme TV to run on Android TV. It is seen sporting codename "ikebukuro" and MStar T16 processor. According to the screenshot shared by Twitter user Android TV Guide, the TV could be manufactured by China-based ChangHong.
With Realme TV, Realme will join the India's crowded smart TV segment. While the likes of Samsung have been the dominant player in the TV section, smartphone companies such as Xiaomi have gained big momentum in the smart TV space, thanks to their low-cost offerings and e-commerce partnerships.
According to a recent Counterpoint 'TV Tracker Service' report, India r a registered a record 15 million units of TV shipments last year, up by 15% year-on-year. Companies such as Xiaomi, Samsung, TCL and VU led the market through budget smart TVs. Samsung ranked top in the overall market.
