How Does 2021 Look For The Smartphone Market In India?
While the COVID-19 pandemic dealt a huge blow to supply chains across the world, India was the only smartphone market in the top 3 to witness growth in 2020. India’s shipment grew 17 percent with a record of 54.3 million units in the September quarter, even as China and the US witnessed a year-on-year slump during the same period.
The trend is likely to continue, and India is going to witness a rising trend in smartphone sales, with mobile manufacturers slated to launch best mobiles under 10000, and best mobiles under Rs. 15,000 in the coming months.
That said, it’s the budget segment that drives the Indian smartphone market. So much so that, over 70 per-cent of the phones that people look for are in the sub-15,000 price bracket. If you are also thinking of buying a budget smartphone for yourself, we have compiled a list of best mobiles under Rs. 10,000 and best mobiles under Rs. 15,000 in India in 2021.
Loaded with premium specifications, this feature-packed offering from Poco is going to set the bar high for all mid-rangers. The Poco M3, a successor to the Poco M2, has been unveiled for the international markets and is likely to arrive in India early next year. The M3’s true standout feature is its unique design language with an elongated rectangular-shaped camera module, which is similar to the new OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition. It flaunts a massive 6.53-inch HD+ display for an immersive viewing experience.
The smartphone houses a powerful 48MP quad-camera setup at the rear that captures some of the most stunning photos. For selfies, the handset has an 8MP sensor. The M3 is powered by a gaming-centric MediaTek Helio G80 processor clubbed with 4GB and 6GB RAM variants, for a superior and lag-free gaming experience. Also, the M3, which is going to be one of the best mobiles under Rs. 15,000, features a large 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.
Redmi Note 9 (5G):
With all the hype and publicity building up around 5G, Xiaomi is all set to bring a new variant of its popular Note 9 smartphone with 5G connectivity. For this, the handset will feature MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 chip, which is compatible with the next generation of wireless technology. The Redmi Note 9 (5G) will feature a colourful 5.63-inch display with Full HD+ resolution. It will be a purely bezel-less screen that will elevate your viewing experience to another level. On the camera front, Note 9 (5G) will feature three powerful sensors of 48MP, 8MP, and 2MP at the front. With 6GB RAM and up to 512GB ROM, the Note 9 will offer enough storage for all your music, photo, and video collections.
Expected to be a toned-down version of the Samsung F41, this phone is intended to take on the increasing competition in the mid-range segment. It will feature a vibrant 6.7-inch display with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera on the top left. Unlike other mid-rangers, the F12 will have a Super AMOLED screen offering deep, awesome blacks, high contrast ratio, and punchy colors.
For all your photography needs, there will be a 48MP triple camera at the rear and a 16MP selfie camera with features like Single Take, Live Focus, and Smart Beauty. Samsung has been working hard on the camera capabilities of its mid-range devices and the F12, touted as one of the best phones under 15000 INR, will see some major improvements.
