  • Realme TV retail packaging has been spotted.
  • It mentions the Android TV logo as well as Netflix logo.
  • Realme TV is seen available in a 43-inch size model.

Realme TV was recently spotted on the company support page, alluding to its launch that could happen sooner than later. Now, the retail packaging of the Realme TV has leaked online, giving us extra information on what the product is expected to come with. Not only its specifications, but the leaked image of retail packaging has also revealed what the Realme TV could look like. The Realme TV is corroborated to come in at least the 43-inch size, going by the leaked image. However, previously, the Realme TV was spotted on Bluetooth SIG website suggested a 32-inch model while a BIS listing hinted at a 55-inch model, as well.

According to MySmartPrice, the leaked image of the retail packaging of Realme TV stored in a warehouse has confirmed a few things. First, the Realme TV will indeed have a 43-inch model. Previously, the Realme TV surfaced on the Bluetooth SIG certification website, as well as the Bureau of Indian Standards website, wherein its sizes were revealed. The Realme TV could have two more models other than the 43-inch one - a 32-inch entry-level variant and a top-level 55-inch variant. All three variants are expected to launch in India first. Realme CEO Madhav Sheth had already confirmed Realme TV will be launched in India before anywhere else.

Moreover, the leaked image has suggested the Realme TV could come pre-installed with the Netflix app. For now, it is not clear if the television will have HDR or Dolby Vision, which should be in the offing considering Realme will pitch Netflix support as a USP. Most televisions in the market, even in the affordable segment, now come with support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Netflix has a huge catalogue of Dolby Vision content while Amazon Prime Video has plenty of HDR content. By giving native support for Netflix on the Realme TV, Realme could be avoiding the mistake that Xiaomi did with its Mi TV. When Mi TV was launched in India originally, it lacked the Netflix app and it eventually caused an uproar among users.

The report additionally claims Realme TV packaging also has the Android TV logo, corroborating what a previous leak said. According to the leak, Realme TV was certified by Google for Android TV a few weeks back. The Realme TV is also likely to feature support for Google Assistant. Realme got a remote control certified on the Bluetooth SIG website some weeks back as well. Maybe, Realme will provide the remote control with a dedicated Google Assistant button. Besides, Realme could also offer a dedicated Netflix button on the remote control. Since Realme TV is expected to come running Android TV, it will be easier for users to install whatever apps there are available in the Google Play store for Android TV.
