Samsung has successfully managed to displace Xiaomi and regain the top spot in India’s smartphone market. Most of the credit for this rise can be given to the company’s mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy J6 and Galaxy J8 that have been performing good in terms of sales, a Counterpoint research report said. Still, Samsung has been facing some heat from the competition.
Just yesterday, the Galaxy J7 Duo price in India was slashed, and it is now available for Rs 13,990. Now, Samsung has also given a price cut to the popular Galaxy J6 smartphone for the second time. The news does not come officially from Samsung, but from a Mumbai based retailer Mahesh Telecom. The new change in price is also reflecting on Flipkart.
The Galaxy J6 was launched in India for Rs 13,990 for 3GB RAM variant, and Rs 16,490 for the 4GB RAM variant. Now, after the price cut the base variant is available for Rs 12,990, whereas the 4GB RAM variant will set you back by Rs 14,990, which sees a cut of Rs 1,500.
