China-based Realme's smartphone shipments grew by over 600 percent in the September-October period in comparison to the July-August period, making it the top emerging brand in India, a new report said on Thursday. During the same period, Xiaomi's and Samsung's shipments grew by 10-12 percent each while Huawei-Honor grew by around 5 per cent, said CyberMedia Research's (CMR) mobile handset report.

"Realme's breakthrough performance points to the fact that the India market still offers enough growth opportunities for aggressive brands with differentiated marketing strategies. Realme's focus has been on the very demanding millennials," said Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group, CMR. "On the back of the upcoming Realme U1, I would not be surprised if Realme were to potentially breakthrough into the top five smartphone brands in Q4 2018," he added.

The India mobile handset market recorded 9 percent sequential growth in the Q3 period. On the back of aggressive smartphone launches and primarily driven by online platforms, the smartphone market grew sequentially by 29 percent. "During the festive season (especially in between September and October), the India market saw record smartphone shipments," added Narinder Kumar, Lead Analyst-IIG, CMR.

In Q4 2018, CMR estimates point to smartphone shipments touching 36 million units, marking a 16 percent increase (year-on-year). The smartphone shipments are slated to cross 315 million units by the end of 2018. The CMR said that online platforms will contribute to an increase of about 60-65 percent (YoY) while there will be a decline of 4-6 percent in offline platforms in Q4 2018.
