In a blog post, the firm said realme had made headway in the key markets of Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam for the first time.
realme had already gained a spot in the top five in Australia and Pakistan, and the region of Taiwan, Counterpoint said.
The brand had grown 141% year-on-year and 64% quarter-on-quarter and now had 13% market share in the region.
Counterpoint said in the Philippines, realme had grown 97% quarter-on-quarter and overtook Xiaomi, OPPO and Samsung to take the second spot, after being fifth in the first quarter.
Commenting on the growth of the brand, Counterpoint research analyst Abhilash Kumar said: "The right channel strategies, effective marketing and good value-for-money products across all price bands helped realme defy the market decline.
"The COVID-19 pandemic led consumers towards online sales platforms where realme has a strong presence. Innovative initiatives like 'zero-touch shipping' during the outbreak helped realme keep the offline momentum as well.
"In addition, realme has been proactive in launching new models online without any postponements. Coupled with social media campaigns and strong word-of-mouth marketing, the brand has positioned itself strongly, especially among younger age profile segments.”
