KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Dec. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Realme, one of Malaysia's fastest growing brands with an emphasis on providing high quality smartphones at youth-friendly prices has achieved many milestones in just one month. Together with its positive sales record, Realme is growing at a strong pace and is well accepted by the local market.

Launched in November, Realme has achieved great success and is becoming rapidly known as a brand with outstanding product features and performance and affordable price points. Its positive sales performance also reflects its fast-rising market growth in a short period of time. Speaking on this, Tiffany Teh, Brand Manager of Realme Malaysia, said, "We've only been in the market for just over one month and it has been a great journey thus far. When we first came into the Malaysia market, we took note that it's a great competitive environment with many opportunities to grow. By considering the diverse and unique cultural characteristics of our local consumers, we have been able to communicate effectively with them."

PricewaterhouseCoopers's (PwC) Global Consumer Insights survey reported that when it comes to online and in-store spending, social media remains the biggest influence on consumers looking for inspiration for their purchases. With the rise of diversified payment method and evolution of the check-out process, Malaysia eCommerce sector is projected to grow at 11% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR).

Explaining more about Realme's success in winning the hearts of local consumers, Teh added "We see a shift in purchasing behaviour, especially here in Malaysia, that is adapting more towards e-commerce as well as brick-and-mortar stores that are also making transactions online to reach out to current and potential customers. We are glad to partner with Lazada and Shopee especially with the service quality that they provide for their loyal customers and when the 12.12 sale came knocking on our door, we saw this as a great opportunity to partner with them again. We are extremely happy with the feedback we have been getting, not only from our customers, but also media and partners. Feedback is valuable to us because it doesn't only help us improve our communications, but also helps us to better understand what people are looking for when it comes to mobile devices."
