The world’s largest smartphone maker Samsung recently reported better-than-expected jump in net profits, boosted by the successful early release of its new flagship Galaxy S7. The company rolled out the latest version of its Galaxy S series, Galaxy S7 smartphone, in March.
The strong Galaxy S7 performance came in the face of a flattening global smartphone market that saw arch-rival Apple report its first-ever drop in iPhone sales since launching the handset in 2007.
According to research firm IDC, the worldwide smartphone market saw its slowest growth in the first quarter, growing just 0.2%.
In India too, Samsung recently claimed that it has overtaken Apple to top India’s premium smartphone segment in the January-March quarter. Hong Kong-based shipment tracker Counterpoint Research’s figures show that Samsung’s volume share in January-March rose to 62% from 35% in the preceding quarter. Apple’s share, in contrast, fell to 37% from 55%.
