How does it compete with rivals?
In the current situation, the Chinese brands such as Xiaomi are playing it well in India with feature-rich reasonably-priced smartphones. The Redmi Note 5 Pro with relatively better specifications comes at a lesser pricing and is one of the bestselling devices in the country. A Samsung smartphone with the above-mentioned specifications carrying a price point of above Rs. 20,000 could be a concern for the buyers.
