Following a high-profile mishap in recent years, TÜV Rheinland is the place the industry visits for independent safety and quality checks. The company specialises in the testing and assessment of new products, and issuing certification for all required safety standards.
Now Realme has announced that it has worked with the German company to create the new TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification, and perhaps unsurprisingly it’s two Realme phones, the C21 and C25, which are the first to obtain the certification.
This new certification is the result of over eight months of research and testing, of which there are 23 major tests carried out. These consist of ten daily use test scenarios, including drop, wear and tear.
There are seven extreme tests, including super high temperature, extreme humidity, voltage fluctuation, button life, static electricity, and air pressure – as well as six component reliability test scenarios.
Other tests include the actual production process itself, to ensure consistency throughout the manufacturing process.
Some tests have been tailored to the target market for a new phone, so with Realme devices aimed at a younger demographic, tests have included accidental drops from a height of 1.8 metres on different surfaces, for activities such as skateboarding and parkour.
If at any point, a product fails to meet these high standards, the quality control team has a right to reject the product and have them redesigned.
