Samsung today launched its latest Galaxy Note 10 flagship series in India. At the launch event, the company said that it is aiming to capture 65 percent premium market share by the year-end. It was recently reported that in the first half of 2019, Samsung clocked 63 percent market share in the premium phone segment.
“We had 52 percent value market share in the premium segment (over Rs 30,000) in full-year 2018. In the first half of 2019 (January-June period), we have clocked 63 percent value market share in the premium segment,” Ranjivjit Singh, Senior Vice President and Head of Marketing, Mobile Business, Samsung India, told IANS. In addition, PTI reported that by the end of 2019, Samsung is confident of expanding this share further to 65 percent and above, as per Singh.
“Overall, the premium segment is estimated to be between Rs 15,000-Rs 20,000 crore in India. In this segment, the industry is growing at 9-10 percent while we are growing in the excess of 20 percent in the country. This shows the loyalty Indian users have towards our premium devices like S10 and Note series,” Singh emphasized.
The Galaxy Note 10 price in India starts from Rs 69,999. This price is for the 8GB RAM with 256GB storage model. The Galaxy Note 10+ will cost you Rs 79,999 for 12GB RAM with 256GB storage.
