Realme Smart TV Overview
This entry from Realme will surely increase the competition in the market which is already quite crowded. Moreover, it is just the beginning for Realme as it will be focusing on IoT devices and software along with its smartphone brand.

Other than the size and the viewing experience, the two variants have no specific differences. Obviously, the 43-inch variant with Full HD resolution will offer better results.
These LED TVs have Chroma Boost feature that improves contrast and saturation level of the displayed content on the screen. The Realme Smart TV can light up to 400 nits and supports content up to the HDR10 format.
