The Q2 2018 shipment numbers distributed so far have gotten uplifting news for Samsung India. The organization recovered a portion of the lost ground and is hinting at market dominance again. In the premium handset segment (>INR 30,000 or $437), be that as it may, it appears is having an intense time in India, at least as indicated by a report from Counterpoint Research.
According to the most recent information from Counterpoint Research, OnePlus purportedly outperformed Samsung to emerge as India’s driving premium smartphone mark in Q2 2018. Solid interest for the OnePlus 6 has helped the Chinese organization enlist a stunning 446% YoY growth and capture 40% of the piece of the pie in the premium smartphone section.
Samsung settled for the 2nd spot with 34% market share, a drop of 25% when compared to last year. As confirmed by Samsung in its Q2 2018 earnings, Galaxy S9/S9+ sales have been slow globally, and the same applies to India as well. Even Samsung’s arch rival, Apple, had a weak quarter with market share dropping to 14% – its lowest ever in the country.
