If we were to keep the likes of Samsung, Apple and Sony out of contention for the time being, we will see how the Indian domestic market has been flooded with a host of new smartphone makers ranging from a host of different countries.
While Apple and Samsung still continue to dominate the entire smartphone dominion with their own iOS and Android offerings, respectively, but still there are a host of new names that are trying massively to get into a similar scene.
