The Rs. 15,000 – Rs. 20,000 price band was the fastest-growing in the online segment, the Redmi Note 7 Pro was the best performing, followed by the Realme 3 Pro.

Flipkart grew 45 percent year-over-year in Q2 2019, due to strong sales of Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme C2 and Realme 3. These three models alone contribute to one-third of Flipkart's overall sales. Amazon, on the other hand, grew 9 percent YoY driven by with Xiaomi Redmi 6A, Samsung Galaxy M-series, Xiaomi Redmi 7, and the OnePlus7 Series.
