The new youth-focused smartphone series will reportedly take on Xiaomi's POCO and Redmi sub-brands in the budget segment. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on the tech specs of the upcoming Narzo series smartphone.
Thanks to a solid lineup of budget and mid-range phones, Realme's shipments in the Indian market grew by a whopping 263.5% YoY in 2019, according to data from IDC. When it comes to market share, however, Realme still has a long way to go before it can catch up with Xiaomi. While Xiaomi held 28.6% of the Indian smartphone market last year, Realme's share was only 10.6%. Realme expects its market share to grow significantly this year, and the new Narzo series could play an important role in helping the company achieve strong growth in the budget segment.
