Earlier today, realme launched its 11 Pro Series 5G featuring 200 MP OIS SuperZoom camera at the NEXT LEAP event in New Delhi.

The exclusive colour variants have been carefully crafted to offer a distinct and stylish appearance. The collaboration brings together the worlds of fashion and technology, creating a stylish product that pushes boundaries in the industry. 

“We believe in fostering collaboration and engaging with creative minds from around the world. In our conversations with various designers, Matteo Menotto stood out with his unique perspective and artistic talent,” says Tao Zhang, chief marketing officer of realme India. “For this particular project, we began by conceptualising the theme of urban exploration and wanted to create a design that captures the essence of vibrant cities and their dynamic energy.” 

During the communication process, Menotto presented the team a captivating painting inspired by the city of Milan. The artwork resonated strongly with the brand’s concept of urban exploration, seamlessly blending modern aesthetics with a touch of urban charm.

With the aim of ensuring that everyone can experience the premium features and quality of the smartphones—regardless of their budget—the collaboration represents one of the many steps realme is taking in that direction. “We have carefully crafted this phone with a focus on providing a high-end experience at a reasonable price, without compromising on performance, design and features. Our goal is to empower users with a device that combines innovation, style and functionality, enabling them to enjoy the benefits of modern technology,” says Zhang.

“We understand that today's youngsters seek smartphones that not only offer cutting-edge features but also reflect their personal style and taste,” he adds. With this in mind, the concept of ‘Master design’ was introduced in their number series products, starting with the realme 11 Pro series 5G. “This design philosophy incorporates different aesthetics of luxury into our smartphones. Our goal is to cater to the aspirations of young consumers by offering them the elegance and sophistication they desire,” Zhang explains.
