Intex, the Indian smartphone manufacturer, has beaten Samsung to become the number one smartphone vendor in the country. This is the first time that Samsung has been displaced from the pole position.
Chaudhary Group are the official distributors of Intex mobiles in Nepal and it took every company by a surprise in making a top spot for a first time. Intex is not doing so great at their home turf, but users of Nepal are particularly looking at low priced affordable handsets which Intex is renowned for. In India, Intex and other Indian smartphone manufacturers are showing low sales figure, because of competitively priced Chinese phones from Lenovo, Meizu, and Xiaomi. However, that’s not the case here in Nepal. These Chinese phones have not officially landed here in Nepal (Sad F**king Truth), which means Intex and some handful of other smartphone manufacturer are the only company to provide the low-cost budget friendly experience.
Do you think our smartphone market is colluded with Indian phones, when most of other Chinese manufacturer are providing better value for money products?
