67% of 9.3M Indian Smartphone Shipments In Q2 2013 Are Sub-$200 Phones: IDC

Around 67% of 9.3 million smartphone shipments in Q2 2013 were sub-$200 smartphones, according to a report by IDC. The report says that smartphone shipments in India grew by more than 50% quarter on quarter (QoQ) from 6.1 million units in Q1 2013.

Feature phone market declining but still accounts for 85% of shipments: The total mobile phone shipments increased by 4% QoQ and 21% YoY in the country. The feature phone market is declining but still accounts for 85% of the mobile phone market in the country. Samsung and Nokia apparently still dominate the Indian market but their market share are steadily declining due to intense competition from local handset makers like Micromax, Karbonn, Lava,…
