Awaiting the launch of new and even more exciting models in the budget phone segment in 2018.
India has already replaced the US as the world’s second largest smartphone market. And, this feat was achieved by the end of September 2017, which was before Chinese phone makers literally flooded the Indian market with countless models and irresistible holiday offers. India welcomed all these models with open arms. After all, OnePlus 5T was sold out within the first five minutes and Xiaomi sold close to 10 million units in a single quarter! We particularly enjoyed the launch of budget phones with amazing specifications, including bigger batteries, better cameras and more storage space.
