Samsung has said that its smartphone market share in India – which is the world’s third-largest smartphone market – has crossed 40% in the month of June, up from 35% in January. The claim was based on data from market research firm GfK.
“Our market share (smartphone) has crossed 40 percent by value in June this year,” said Samsung India VP marketing (IT and mobile) Asim Warsi at the Galaxy A8 launch event. “Since January 2015, we continued to grow for six consecutive months and widened the gap (marketshare).”
It’s worth mentioning that in 2015, the South Korean company has already released around 16 handsets in the country, including the Tizen-based Z1 smartphone, which has sold well. “India is an encouraging market with double digit growth,” Warsi said.
