We saw Realme tease a bunch of their products during the X50 Pro smartphone launch. In the list of devices planned by the brand, we saw the Realme SmartTV and a Soundbar. While the products were to be launched by the end of April, they have been pushed back due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Now we are hearing from our sources that the launch of both the TV and soundbar should be expected towards the end of Q2. Along with this, we are being told that Realme is looking to launch the TV in just two models currently, a 43 and a 55-inch with other sizes to follow soon. Furthermore, the existence of a 43-inch model was confirmed through a BIS listing as reported by Stufflistings. These will be running the latest version of AndroidTV at their core with a light skin on top.
This could be a forked version of RealmeOS that is being pushed to the lastest Realme smartphone models. The TV will be powered by Amlogic chips and most likely sport standard hardware.
Along with the TV, we will also a soundbar from the brand. While internally there are two models being looked at, one with an external subwoofer and without it. Our source tells us that a standalone soundbar will more likely be the finalized product.
As per the design drawings that we got, the soundbar will be 32-inches in length complementing the 43-inch TV model. It should be launched under the RMA3XX product code with just a single colour planned as of now. The buttons will be placed on the sides while the ports can be found on the back. For ease of use, Realme will be supplying a basic remote with the volume and input selection buttons. The planned sound output could be around 40W as indicated by the source.
In terms of pricing, the 43-inch SmartTV model will be priced under INR 26,000 while the larger 55-inch should be under INR 45,000. As for the Soundbar expect it to priced close to INR 6,500 (these are speculated prices and might change as per market conditions).
