Counterpoint: Samsung has 25 percent of sold smartphones in India
Just last week, a firm by name GFK told us how Nokia phones have jumped into third position in India during the last quarter. However, information from Counterpoint disputes the report, saying insinuating that Nokia is nowhere near the top 3.
According to the research agency, Samsung held 25.1 % (they had 25.3% from last quarter) of India’s smartphone market share during Q3 while home-based Micromax held 20.4 points from the 19.1 % it had last quarter. Karbonn was third with 9.6 % while Motorola and Sony stood closely at fourth and fifth positions respectively with 4.7 percent and 4.5 percent.
India’s smartphone industry grew by a whooping 23 % in year-over-year difference during the quarter. Last year’s July to September period saw the sale of 19 million smartphone but this year’s Quarter 3 had 23.5 million units.
The growing need for consumers flocking to the Internet using mobile phones coupled with rapidly declining average selling price (ASP) of smartphones has been the key drivers of uptake of smartphones in India,” Tina Lu, Counterpoint Research’s Senior Consultant said.
