We have claimed 40 percent of Indian smartphone market — Samsung
Despite getting tackled strongly by Apple and Chinese brands like Lenovo and Xiaomi, Korean phone maker Samsung claims it’s still the name to beat when it comes to selling handsets in India.
In the second quarter of 2014, in China, Samsung lost their top position to Xiaomi even before feeling the market share pressure introduced by Apple’s latest iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus later in September that year. However, the story seems to be very different in India as the tech giant says it has dominated 40 percent of the country’s smartphone sales.
“Our market share has crossed 40 percent by value in June this year. Since January 2015, we continued to grow for six consecutive months and widened the gap,” stated Asim Warsi, Samsung spokesman and VP of marketing in India.
