Samsung Galaxy A70 India launch Will Probably Likely Be next week, the company has revealed, with Galaxy A80 coming in May.
The business has also shown the price range of the smartphones. Samsung is targeting $4 billion (roughly Rs. 27,700 crores) in revenues from its Galaxy A-series of mobiles in 2019, is geared up to challenge its Chinese rivals with various new devices, such as the Galaxy A70 smartphone next week and also the Galaxy A80 in May, a top company official said on Monday. The Samsung Galaxy A80 was formally unveiled a week, whereas the Galaxy A70 was introduced late last month.
“We will start the Galaxy A70 at India next week in the Rs. 25,000 – Rs. 30,000 mount as well as the Galaxy A80 in the Rs. 45,000 – Rs. 50,000 bracket in May,” Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Samsung India, told IANS.
Featuring a 6.7-inch Infinity-U Display, the Samsung Galaxy A70 comes with 4,500mAh battery, 25W Super-Charging rapid charging technologies, and a triple camera system in the rear.
The Samsung Galaxy A80, that was announced globally on April 10, has a pop-up rotating triple-camera system, and also a full-screen display.
The South Korean technology giant is facing stiff competition from Chinese smartphone makers, especially in the budget and mid-range segment.
Samsung’s increased focus on the Galaxy A-series which offers phones in the Rs. 10,000 into Rs. 50,000 section, shows that the provider is ready to present its Chinese competitors a difficult fight in the forthcoming days.
“We’re targeting $4 billion from the Galaxy A show within the calendar year. Just at the first 40 days starting March 1, we’ve sold a total of two million units of 3 Galaxy’A’ models in India — A50, A30, and A10. The revenue turnover from these three phones in 40 days is $500 million. I believe that is a record for any brand in the business,” Singh added.
“When the remainder of the portfolio at the Galaxy A-series becomes available we’re sure of not only attaining, but exceeding our target,” he said, adding that the Galaxy A-series phones will be accessible across the stations – both offline and online.
Samsung earlier announced that it would start a minumum of one telephone every month from March to June this year.
Before this month, it announced the Galaxy A20, its fourth smartphone at the Galaxy A series this year. In March, Samsung launched Galaxy A10 for Rs. 8,490, Galaxy A30 for both Rs. 16,990, and Galaxy A50 in 2 variants – one for Rs. 19,990 and another in Rs. 22,990.
Samsung now has a telephone at the Galaxy A series in virtually all price ranges from the Rs. 10,000 into Rs. 50,000 bracket. To remember, Samsung lately confirmed it’s doing with the Galaxy J-series, with the Galaxy A-series to substitute it.
“The portfolio is ever-evolving with the consumer. To reach $4 billion earnings I’ll have to look at every opportunity. We will think of the ideal opportunity for the range you’re speaking about (the Rs. 30,000-Rs. 45,000 section ). Just because we have not announced Galaxy A-series phone in this range in India, does not mean we aren’t working on it,” Singh told IANS.
Samsung India, that earned revenues of $5.5 billion out of the smartphones business in the country from the 2018 fiscal year, can also be starting other cheaper phones — like the’M’ series — to carry on the Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
“We are going to send out Galaxy A2 core this week at Rs. 5,290. This is going to be a tremendous boost to people who want to switch out of feature phones to smartphones. This will be huge in terms of quantity,” Singh added.
