Realme 11 Pro series breaks sales records on day of release
Realme has been inviting its fans in India to "zoom to the next level" with a new 11 Pro+ (presumably due to the up-to-4x spec for its brand-first 200MP main rear camera) since the very recent start of its "First Sale" event that runs until June 18, 2023 in the country.
The OEM has gone with Flipkart as an official retail partner for this event, a platform for which the new line of Realme smartphones has now reportedly set new sales records. The new series (which consists of the non-200MP, 67 SuperVOOC-equipped 11 Pro as well as the flagship 100W Pro+) has moved over 60,000 units on the site within the first 24 hours of availability.
The achievement may thus add an extra high note to Realme's successful transplant of this new ultra-high-res camera spec to the INR 20,000-30,000 (~US$240-370) price-bracket of the Android smartphone market. Accordingly, the new sales record may also serve as an ultimate swansong for Madhav Sheth's tenure as a leading executive with the company throughout its 5-year history.
