Ah man it really hurts to see a CEO(if i'm right that his position is) of a million dollar tech company failing to see the major advancements SD855 duo brings to the table over the 710/712 lineup. This is just being downright ignorant to the facts. I was really hoping to see a Redmi K20 pro competitor this fall.

"The innovation is so fast and so dynamic that people need... our users needs more and more. The lifecycle has gone shorter, hence they need more."

Wait... I thought that the phone lifecycle has increased since people are holding on to their devices for longer, which has caused the mobile phone market to decline this year... Also there's nothing inovative here. What's inovative about the RM5/Pro? Repurposing a depth sensor as a macro lens? Yeesh.

Really?? 🤣🤣

This dude is just plain clueless talking about stock Android not being stable. Nothing is smoother and has better update track than stock Android.
I'm not really encouraged in buying from a company whose CEO is completely unknowledgeable.

Snapdragon 855 is vastly superior to Snapdragon 712 , try running pubg mobile , fortnite on max settings on 712 , ie it doesn't even work.

The heck of a comment he did on dumping Memory card slot in Realme X, there are many Pop Up camera mobiles having triple card slot or even Hybrid slot.

Raw android is not stable.. Do u mean OS from google is not stable?

855 is not a gimmick. its lot more efficient than 710 on 7nm process vs 10nm. Plus it has A76 based soc vs older architecture on 710.

That said its ok for Realme to focus on midranger. Let Vivo or Oppo release high end flagships. Focus should be on improving the OS. They are currently behind Xiaomi on software front.

Realme targets budget and midrange segment that's why they didn't bring any flagships. It's funny to see Europeans bashing Realme phones even without using it. Their devices are as good as Samsung and Mi. Yeah, color os looks bad but it's perfectly usable and optimized. Also Asians prefer custom OS than stock android. Stock android is barebones. Oxygen OS and Zen UI does a good job of looking close to stock android while adding neat features.

LOL stock android is raw? So heaving bloatwares which of no use is a featured os?. In our daily life we use Google services such as Chrome, Maps, Photos, Contact, Messages, Files then what is the use of other bloatwares?
And curious to know that what kind of software support they are providing as he is in full of confidence to say that and even he said we are not in rush but what about launching difference between realme 3 pro and realme 5/5 pro about just 4 months LOL.
What realme os could be just a copy of Iphone os with similar style icons like color os.
Great marketing strategy nothing else.

"What's the difference between Snapdragon 710 and 855 when we are talking about day-to-day usage? Do brands want to use the 855 as a marketing gimmick, or because it has any practical usage?"

He can't be serious? This guy is totally clueless and boring. Epic fail interview.

This guy is so wrong with the stock android part. His opinions on why smartphones shouldn't have stock android is completely wrong. How did he become CEO of a mobile phone company, lol?

Just look at Sudokwon and to whom it belongs and how much they accumulate every single day.
These strange people ewwww.............................
