PHILIPPINES – realme Philippines continues to solidify its position as an industry disruptor with an impressive roster of accomplishments. After being hailed the country’s no. 1 smartphone brand for Q1 and Q2 2021, the three-year-old brand was also recently named as the top smartphone vendor for Q3 2021 by top international research firms Canalys and IDC.

According to Canalys, realme ranked first for Q3 2021, accounting for 26% of the local market share, besting four other smartphone brands.

The brand’s industry leadership for the quarter is also validated by IDC as the research firm also reported a number 1 ranking for realme in a separate report.

With this milestone, the fast-growing tech and lifestyle brand has now managed to consistently maintain its lead for three consecutive quarters—an unprecedented feat the brand attained in just three years. The brand first held this position in Q3 of 2020, just less than two years since its entry to 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,” says Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing.
