Realme, which held the Realme x TÜV Rheinland Quality Standards Launch Event today, announced the company’s new smartphone quality standard for young users. Based on the research on young users, Realme and TÜV Rheinland jointly created the TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification, based on the initial 3-year smartphone life cycle experience. Moreover, the Realme C21 and Realme C25 are the first smartphones to obtain the certification.
TÜV Rheinland Quality Certification
After over eight months of research and testing, TÜV Rheinland and Realme have jointly created the TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification, which serves as the leading industry standard for major markets worldwide.
The TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification process encompasses 23 major tests, including ten daily use test scenarios, such as drop, wear, and tear; seven extreme environment test scenarios, including super extreme temperature, extreme humidity, voltage fluctuation, button life, static electricity, air pressure; and six component reliability test scenarios, the company said in a statement.
Realme Smart Factory
Realme has been investing in a smart factory that aims to be fully automated in the near future. That way Realme can improve the efficiency and precision of complex manufacturing processes.
One such automation example is the SMT production line, which is responsible for putting components onto the PCB motherboard. The current automation rate in the smart factory is 87.5%, which is already way above the industry standards. Thanks to the AI automation capability, the current Realme AI smart factory can produce 60 million devices every year, the company claims.
The company claims to strictly follows a certain set of principles and criteria when designing any product. All realme products are required to have a trendsetting design powered by leap-forward technology and are produced through rigorous quality control.
There appears to be a 6-stage smartphone design process based on which smartphones are designed, developed, and tested in the factory. The Quality Control team is involved in every step of checking on the product quality.
At any given point, if the product fails to meet the quality standards, the Quality Control team has a veto right to reject the inferior quality product, and the rejected products are redesigned from scratch.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Madhav Sheth, Vice President, realme and Chief Executive Officer, realme India and Europe said, “We are also pleased to announce that we have partnered with the world-renowned authority in quality TÜV Rheinland and have worked together with them to set new, upgraded quality standards for smartphones. TÜV Rheinland and realme have jointly created the TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification, which will serve as the leading industry standard for major markets worldwide. realme C21 and realme C25 will be the first smartphones which will have TÜV Rheinland High Reliability Certification.
