Realme Expansion Map: The Realme Offline Expansion

Recently the company broke off with Reliance Digital, the largest electronics retail chain in the country.

The Realme smartphones at Reliance Digital stores were priced more than the online stores, and this could be one of the reasons behind the spat.
