After two weeks of back-to-back sold-out sales on Shopee and being hailed the fastest-selling smartphone under P10,000, the realme 3 successfully lands on the hands of pre-order customers at its first nationwide in-store sale, with sales higher by 900 percent compared with realme Philippines first offline sale last year. These early successes for the realme 3 are a testament to how the product delivers on the promise of Power and Style at a very competitive price point.

Realme Concept Kiosks and authorized stores nationwide were filled last April 6 with customers claiming their pre-ordered realme 3 smartphone as early as March this year. Pre-order customers were able to get freebies worth P1,299.

“Our stores nationwide received overflowing interest and positive feedback from pre-order customers, which results in 900 percent higher sales growth compared with our first weekend of selling alone,” shared Realme Philippines COO Jacky Chen. “This clearly reflects that Filipinos truly discover and appreciate real value that the realme 3 can provide. To let more Filipinos discover this real value, we will strive to provide the realme 3 in more locations nationwide,”

The realme 3 broke the perception about a budget smartphone by providing many industry firsts, including a strong Helio P60 processor used by more expensive smartphones, dual AI cameras with Nightscape and Chroma Boost modes and large-capacity 4,230mAh battery for all-day performance, all in a gradient unibody design for stand-out style. These features are normally found in smartphones above P10,000, but realme was able to provide these for as low as P6,990. You can check out our full review at this link.

The flagship variant 4GB+64GB variant is now available in stores nationwide for P9,990. Customers who pre-ordered the 3GB+64GB variant can claim starting April 13, 2019 and still get freebies worth P1,299. To find out where to buy the realme 3, visit
