Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Samsung India, told IANS, "We will launch the Galaxy A70 in India next week in the Rs 25,000-Rs 30,000 bracket and the Galaxy A80 in the Rs 45,000-Rs 50,000 bracket in May."
Talking about specifications, the Galaxy A70 comes with a 6.7-inch Infinity-U display, ,4,500mAh battery, super-charging technology and a triple camera system at the rear. Galaxy A80, which was announced globally on April 10, has a pop-up rotating triple-camera system and a full-screen display.
Samsung is facing stiff competition from Chinese smartphone makers, especially in the budget and mid-range segment.
Samsung's increased focus on the 'A' series which offers phones in the Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000 segment, shows that the company is ready to give its Chinese competitors a tough fight in the coming days.
Singh further added, "We are targeting $4 billion from the Galaxy A series over the calendar year. Just in the first 40 days starting March 1, we have sold a total of two million units of three Galaxy 'A' models in India -- A50, A30 and A10. The revenue turnover from these three phones in 40 days is $500 million. I think this is a record for any brand in the industry.”
