A few months back, the smartphone market in India went down.
The market is still small, with only 1.4 million smartphones sold, according to research firm IDC.
The country is also struggling to diversify its supply chain, as it has to import about 40% of its smartphones, IDC said.
The new iPhone models that were launched in the country this year are not cheap and offer limited features.
So, if you are considering a smartphone, be sure to check its specifications and its battery life, said Arvind Shrestha, senior analyst at research firm Gartner India.
