- Best budget smartphones from Samsung to buy in India right now
The South-Korean smartphone giant, Samsung, today announced that they will be only launching 4G VoLTE smartphones in India. This move came especially because of the rapidly growing Indian telecom sector.
With the entrance of Reliance Jio, things quickly changed in India. It is worth noticing that Reliance Jio is the country's first LTE-only network, which means that the network doesn't roll back to 3G or 2G network when 4G service is not available at your place.
Why is Samsung making this move? Let's find out in the sliders below.
Over 80 percent of Smartphones are 4G Enabled
Samsung India's VP, Manu Sharma believes that over 80 percent of people in India are using 4G enabled smartphones. Also, in a recent survey conducted, it is revealed that the 4G user base in India is increasing day-by-day because of the Reliance Jio.
Entry-Level Smartphones to Feature VoLTE
He also said that the company will launch 4G VoLTE smartphones across all segments including the entry-level category. Already, they have some good number of smartphones such as the Galaxy J2 (2016), Galaxy On5 (2016) under the same category.
Improvements for the Noida-Manufacturing Plant
Samsung will invest nearly Rs. 2,000 crore in their Noida manufacturing plant to only manufacture 4G smartphones, which is really a good move.
India is Rapidly Growing!
As stated earlier, Indian telecom sector has changed a lot in recent time, especially after the launch of Reliance Jio, where the company is offering free services until December 31.
Good for Reliance Jio!
This latest move from Samsung will be a big deal for the new entrant- Reliance Jio because the service won't work on 3G/ 2G devices.
