“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 per cent 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 per cent.

“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 per cent 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 per cent (YoY) while there will be a decline of 4-6 per cent in offline platforms in Q4 2018.
