This impressive year-over-year growth was driven by multiple online sale festivals, new model launches, and price corrections on a few key models by various brands.
Xiaomi smartphone shipments in India reached an all-time high of 12.6 million units in Q3 2019. The 8.5% YoY growth was primarily driven by Redmi 7A and Redmi Note 7 Pro, which emerged as the highest shipped models in the overall India smartphone market. Xiaomi continued to lead in the India online smartphone market with an appreciable 40% share in the third quarter.
The biggest surprise comes from Samsung which was the only vendor amongst the top five to fall, dropping 8.5% YoY in Q3 2019. The lag between older Galaxy A series (Galaxy A10, 50, etc.) and the refreshed Galaxy As (Galaxy A10s, A50s etc.) series led to this sharp decline.
Vivo smartphone shipments in India increased a whopping 58.7% YoY in Q3 2019, to a record 7.1 million units.
In the third quarter of 2019, Realme climbed to the fourth position in the India smartphone market.
