Realme were caught in an embarrassing mishap during the launch of their new smartphone in Bangladesh. The company was launching their latest device named Narzo 30A and during the gaming test of this mobile, they were caught using iPhones on the stage instead of their own devices.
Realme is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer and during the launch event of Narzo 30A in Bangladesh, they were demonstrating the Game Streaming feature of their new device. The company was streaming PUBG Mobile on devices that they claimed to be Narzo 30A but a small notification pop-up on one of the devices revealed that it was an iPhone.
Three people were streaming the game during the event and while showcasing the gameplay, one of the players switched on the “Guided Access” feature available exclusively on the iPhone devices. This was first reported by MySmartPrice and as a result, the event video was taken down from YouTube.
The Guided Access feature is a special feature for iPhones where players can enable it to stop unnecessary gestures and touch misinterpretations. The pop-up clearly showed that the Guided Access feature was used and this meant that players were using an iPhone rather than Realme Nazra 30A.
This mistake has certainly created a bad impression for the company. It indicates a certain level of misdirection regarding the capabilities of their new phone and has tainted their name. The company has not officially addressed this issue yet.
