realme 6 price in kenya

Realme officially launched its smartphones in Kenya back in August and its first smartphone was the realme C3. Realme started off as a sub-brand of OPPO but now is sort of an independent brand. The company has been focusing on the Asian market since its inception back in 2018.

Besides the smartphones we will list here, realme has a handful of wearables available locally and these include the realme Buds Q and the realme Buds Air Neo.

In this post I will highlight all the realme phones you can get in Kenya as of today (March 2022) and include their prices and links where applicable. I will list the phones from the most affordable to the most expensive ones.

This is a good entry level phone and has maintained its price ever since it was launched so this shows that its demand is still good.
