Samsung Galaxy A series crosses 5m units sales in just 70 days in India

16 May 2019 3

Samsung Electronics has announced that it has sold a 5 million Galaxy A-series phones in India in just 70 days. The company has stated that it has achieved $1 billion revenue from the sales of its Galaxy A series, which includes six models, the Galaxy A50, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A20, Galaxy A10, Galaxy A70, and Galaxy A2 Core.

Samsung, which has been facing competition from Chinese smartphone makers like Xiaomi, has announced that it will be launching a Galaxy A-series smartphone every month from March till June in India.

The Galaxy A70 was launched in India in April for Rs. 28,990, and now the company is gearing up to launch the Galaxy A80 with a rotating triple camera system and a full-screen display.

Samsung has recently revealed that it has grabbed the top spot in the premium smartphone market in India, beating Apple and others. However, Samsung continues to face tough competition in the mid-range and lower priced handset range from Chinese smartphone makers. The company currently has a 23% share in the smartphone market in India.

"Our aim is to make Galaxy A series a $4-billion brand in India this year. We are now on track to exceed our target," Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer, and Senior Vice-President, Samsung India, told IANS. "2019 will be a record year for us," he remarked.

"The pre-booking of the Galaxy A80 is likely to start this month, while the phone may be launched early next month," Singh said but added that the launch date for the phone in India is yet to be finalized.

I feel, with the A and the new M series, Samsung has done well enough to take on Xiaomi and other Chinese brands in the affordable segment. And a decision to launch a new phone each month for four months seems to be the correct one.
