This year is proving to be quite an eventful for one of the fastest-growing smartphone brands in India and other regions, Realme.

Digging in deep in the report, it reveals that approx. 10 million smartphones were shipped which led the company to enter the top 10 global smartphone market for the first time and was placed in the 7th position.
