The online-only model in emerging markets has been instrumental in the success of many a player, especially newcomers. It appears as though veteran makers like Samsung have taken a leaf out of their books to give the end user the benefit of more direct supply chain. Not long back, Samsung teased a Galaxy Grand phone, presumably the Grand 3.
