It’s barely 2 PM, but the third-floor headquarters of Realme India at Gurugram’s Cyber City is asleep. Literally. Employees, just done with lunch, are dimming the lights for an hour-long post-meal nap—a common practice at most Chinese companies.

Realme has exploded out of the blocks in India, garnering 7% of the smartphone market since its launch last May.
