The Realme C2 and Realme 3 phones grabbed the third and fourth spot with 5.9 and 5.6 percent market share. Lastly, the Redmi Note 7 took the fifth spot with 5 percent market share.

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.

While online sales are on a healthy rise, things looked rather grim for offline sales. The report says that offline sales saw a 4 percent decline YoY. While the decline isn't steep, the report claims that online sales were at peak due to summer sales and month-end discounts.
