Vivo and Oppo took the third and fourth spot with 17.3 per cent and 12.2 per cent market share respectively. Realme sold 4.1 million phones and got a 10.7% market share.

While Mi 10i was the leading 5G model in the first quarter of this year, Redmi 9 series models accounted for 10 percent of Xiaomi’s overall demand in India, the IDC report further said.

In other news, Xiaomi took to Chinese microblogging site Weibo to announce that the Mi 11 series models have sold over 3 million units globally. The sales figure of the Mi 11 models were taken between January and April 2021 utilizing third-party retailer sales records and other external sources. The Mi 11 series did business in 2021 for only three months after it was announced worldwide in February.
