India is the fastest growing smartphone market in the world, next only to China in overall volumes. This is why most Chinese majors are making a beeline to set up shop in India. Newcomer, LeEco has already crossed Rs 100 crore in its first year of operation, and similarly almost all major players are clocking numbers they can’t dream of in any other market. And eager customers in India couldn’t ask for more, as most keep a hawk eye surfing e-commerce sites for the most competitive offers.

And in keeping with the sentiment, e-commerce majors are focusing a lot of marketing investment and attention on smartphone offers. Visit Amazon and the first range of offers on display are smartphones. Same is true for other majors like Flipkart, Snapdeal, Infibeam and newcomer Tata CLiQ. Multi-brand retailers like Reliance Digital, Croma, etc., too are laying out the red carpet this season with a plethora of bundled and standalone offers.

Leading the way in cashing on the festive season, smartphone market leader Apple had timed the launch of its latest range of smartphones in India – Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, on 07th October. The response has been tremendous and the company has already hit gold with all variants of the two new models being snapped up within hours. Apple is slated to remain market leader as Samsung had to bite dust with its failed Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which has now been withdrawn from the market.
