OnePlus recorded its highest ever shipments in a single quarter to lead the premium smartphone segment for three successive quarters. Additionally, the success of OnePlus drove overall premium smartphone shipments to a record number in a single year. This was driven by strong demand of its latest OnePlus 6T during festive season. The momentum continues even after festive season due to strong word of mouth and product feedback from the end users. Its latest expansion into the offline space along with Experience Stores will help it to reach potential user base in coming quarters,” noted Karn Chauhan, Research Analyst at Counterpoint Research.

As per Counterpoint, the OnePlus 6T was positioned at second place followed by Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Samsung captured 26 percent market share of the premium segment in Q4. The growth was mainly contributed by the newly launched quad-camera Galaxy A9 in the Rs 30,000- Rs 40,000 price segment.
