Sheth told PTI, "We will end 2019, the first full year of our operations, with sales of 15 million handsets. We are targeting to at least double this in 2020." According to the IDC report, in the third quarter Realme has 14.3 percent market share and Xiaomi jas 27.1 percent share, followed by Samsung and Vivo with 18.9 percent and 15.2 percent respectively.

According to the reports, Realme has become the fourth biggest smartphone brand in India considering the numbers of the third quarter. The company has solely focussed on the online business instead of offline-market. Sheth confirmed that Realme is the seventh fastest-growing smartphone company across the globe.

He also added that soon the company will move to offline-only series in the country which will be announced by the end of 2019. The smartphone will be expected in the mid-range premium segment. "We are lining up with more smart accessories with great performance and trendy design. Realme will become a tech lifestyle brand in 2020," PTI quoted Sheth.
