Xiaomi made a bet on cheap smartphones and lost. Samsung managed to beat the competitor in India thanks to more expensive models
Xiaomi is revising its strategy in the Indian market, as it turned out that the focus on the cheapest smartphones in the first place did not justify itself.
The Reuters resource, referring to data from Counterpoint analysts, says that in the fourth quarter of 2022, Samsung managed to bypass Xiaomi, taking 22% of the market against 18% from a competitor. And this has become possible because Xiaomi is still focused on this market primarily in the price segment up to 10,000 rupees, that is, up to about $120. And buyers in India are already willing to pay more to get more, and Samsung is in a better position to have matching models in its local lineup.
Analysts say the share of smartphones priced below $120 in India has fallen to 26%, down from 41% just two years ago. And the share of devices with a price of more than 30,000 rupees, or about 360 dollars, doubled, reaching 11%.
OnePlus 11 will have a special version with a cover that mimics the surface pattern of Jupiter. According to rumors, the phone will be decorated with marble
OnePlus is preparing something new and interesting. OnePlus China President Li Jie posted a teaser for the “special” version of OnePlus 11 on his Weibo page: the silhouette of the smartphone is superimposed on the image of Jupiter.
In the description, Li Jie talks about a new product that “will be created using unprecedented materials and craftsmanship, making every mobile phone unique.”
A well-known Chinese insider Digital Chat Station joined the discussion. He said that this is not about glass, but at the same time, the new material from which the back panel of the exclusive OnePlus 11 will be made is very common in everyday life. Weibo users speculated that it would be marble.
The transition between Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo smartphones has become even easier: now all data is transferred
Today, March 22, the developers of ColorOS, MIUI and OriginOS confirmed that owners of the respective phones will be able to seamlessly switch from one model to another without worrying about their data.
Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo have agreed to expand cooperation. In addition to data such as photos and contacts, data from third-party applications is also transferred.
To do this, you need to update the corresponding software on Oppo smartphones to version 13.3.7 and higher, Xiaomi to version 4.0.0 and higher, Vivo to version 184.108.40.206 and higher. Previously, transferring data between these smartphones had to be done using third-party software. This method was often slow, consumed traffic and reduced information security.
Now three brands have built-in mutual transmission functions in mobile phones, which is safer and more convenient. With the creation of the Mutual Transmission Alliance, Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo phones exchange information with one touch, and when changing phones, there is no need to worry about correspondence and other data.
Mutual Transmission Alliance was founded back in 2019.
