Realme is one of the most ambitious tech brands out in the market right now. The company has a plan to launch over 100 AIoT products in India in 2021. However, due to the lockdown and restrictions, the company hasn’t been able to launch as many products as it would’ve liked, but in the coming days, we might see Realme picking up the pace and launch more connected devices in India.
