Realme Number series reaches 40 million sales

Yordan, 17 January 2022

The Realme 1 arrived in the middle of 2018, and while it feels like a long time ago, it hasn't even been four years. Since that launch, Realme has brought over two dozen phones as part of its core "Number" series, and has just confirmed it has reached 40 million sales.

According to a study by Strategy analytics this lineup is Realme's second most successful after the affordable C series, the two being pivotal for the brand’s spike in popularity and quick rise to 100 million shipments overall.
