Just before summer, during this quarter, the famous cola brand will introduce the device in India.
A can or bottle of the chilled fizzy drink that makes Indian summers tolerable, brightens up festivals, and is a staple for family gatherings immediately comes to mind whenever Coca-Cola is mentioned. The last thing that most people will connect the recognizable brand with is a smartphone, but Realme plans to change that. According to reports, the venerable American beverage business and the up-and-coming Chinese smartphone company are working together to develop a Coca-Cola smartphone.
It would seem strange for a beverage company to carry a smartphone, though. But it’s safe to say that this isn’t the first time a non-smartphone manufacturer has entered the smartphone market. Similar to how smartphone manufacturers have previously collaborated with well-known retailers. OnePlus and Oppo have partnered to offer the McLaren edition and Avengers Edition of their products, to mention a few.
[Exclusive] Here's the all new #Cola Phone 😍
Can confirm that the device is launching this quarter in India.

Realme’s Coca-Cola phone will arrive this quarter alone, and according to a tweet from tech influencer Mukul Sharma, it will be available in India before summer. Additionally, he showed out the #cola phone, which features the recognizable Coca-Cola logo on its rear panel.
Realme India has now shared a teaser on its website hinting toward the launch of a Coca-Cola smartphone. The teaser shared by Realme reads, “Something exciting is Bubbling”, “realme is set to get refreshing”.

All of this suggests that Realme may release a smartphone with the Coca-Cola logo. The Coca-Cola-themed design does include a dual camera visible in the image, but the influencer hasn’t provided any other information or specifications.
Realme Coca-Cola Edition: Teasers
The CEO of Realme, Madhav Sheth, tweeted a photo of himself holding a Realme phone with a Coca-Cola tin’s reflection visible on the back panel in addition to the brand’s webpage showcasing a Cola Edition device. The phone may be the Realme 10 4G or the recently released Realme 10 Pro 5G. There is a possibility that the Cola phone is a brand-new model.
