COVID-19 has indeed disrupted the lives of Filipinos. And to control the impact of the virus, the Philippine government has implemented an enhanced community quarantine across Luzon.
To aid in boosting the Filipinos’ morale and to provide opportunities to engage especially during these trying times, realme Philippines is launching three campaigns: realme Squadcast, realme MasterShot Series, and the realme Mobile Legends Cup. With these activities from realme Philippines, the brand hopes to be the content and online engagement hub for creating bonding moments at home.
“realme Philippines wants to engage everyone staying at home during this challenging time. Let realme be your home buddy. We hope that through the activities we are launching, we not only keep you company but also enable you to bond with your family. Kasama ninyo kami,” shares realme Philippines Vice President for Marketing Austine Huang.
The realme Squadcast
The realme team, which has always been keen to provide an interactive and personal experience to the realme squad, is taking things up a notch. The realme squad can now interact in real-time with the people behind realme Philippines as they discuss interesting topics every Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:00PM.
The first episode, which aired last March 19, featured the origin story of the realme community and why having a close, familial community is important to the fastest-growing smartphone brand. A couple of viewers even won a realme 5i and a pair of realme Buds.
