According to Canalys, Samsung is actively losing ground in the Indian market.
If just a few years ago it was in the lead and actively resisted the expansion of Xiaomi, now the latter significantly broke away, and the Korean giant is already breathing down the back of Realme.
In the first quarter, Realme sales for the year rose from 4.3 million to 6 million, while Samsung sales fell from 7 million to 6.9 million. As a result, the former has 16% of the market, and the latter now has 18% of the market. Xiaomi with its 8 million sold smartphones holds 21%, although a year earlier it sold 10.5 million units, so in fact the sales decline of Xiaomi is much greater than Samsung.
Also in the top five are Vivo and Oppo with 5.7 million and 4.6 million smartphones sold in the quarter.
A total of 38 million smartphones were sold in the country during the reporting period, up 2 percent from a year ago.
