Targeting Gen Z and millennials, South Korean tech giant Samsung is all set to launch its new Galaxy “A series” smartphone in India this month. The smartphone in question is the Galaxy A80 with its rotating triple camera system, and a full-screen display.
According to Yeon Jeong Kim, head of innovation, product planning group at Samsung Electronics, India is one of the biggest and fast-changing smartphone markets for the company. “Our target is to maintain the top position in the Indian smartphone market. If we win the Indian market, we can win any global market. Indians love technology, therefore, we launch many of our products here and would continue to do so,” Yeon told IANS.
Samsung sold a record five million units of Galaxy “A series” phones in just 70 days. In the process, it achieved $1 billion revenue. The company has so far launched six models in the Galaxy A series. These include the Galaxy A50, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A20, Galaxy A10, Galaxy A70, and the Galaxy A2 Core.
