realme continues to solidify its position as an industry disruptor in the Philippines after it was hailed as the top smartphone in the country in Q3 2021 by research firms Canalys and IDC. The smartphone maker had previously held the spot in Q1 and Q2 2021 as well.
According to Canalys, realme held the top spot for Q3 2021, accounting for 26% of the local market share. IDC validated this with a separate report.
The feat of being the top smartphone brand in the Philippines in three consecutive quarters was done in just less than two years since its entry into the Philippine market in November 2018.
“No words can express how grateful we are to the Filipino squad for their unwavering support and love for the brand since day one. It is truly an honor to be recognized as the top smartphone brand in the country and we could not have done this without the trust and hard work of our incredible fans, employees, partners, and everyone that makes up the realme community.”
Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing
