5G phones to surpass 4G sales in India next year, Samsung should grab opportunity
No doubt, smartphone makers are focusing more on 5G but since the 4G devices are cheaper in cost, many people, especially Indians, prefer buying them therefore, the companies aren’t stopping manufacturing them. But it looks like 5G phones from brands like Samsung, Xiaomi, and others have started getting more popularity in India as a report suggests 5G could surpass 4G sales in the country next year.
Market research firm – Counterpoint has recently reported that 5G smartphones will be sold more than 4G smartphones by the end of 2023 in India. This could be due to the rapid launch of 5G networks by telecom companies and an increase in sales of low-cost handsets.
Moreover, the data speed of the 5G network in the country is expected to be about 10 times faster compared to the 4G. The share of 5G smartphones in the low-cost category could increase to around 30% next year.
On the other side, the research firm also suggested that the overall smartphone shipments in the country could decline this year due to disruptions and a slowdown in the supply of components.
Samsung should grab opportunity:
India’s largest telecom company Reliance Jio is planning to introduce a budget 5G smartphone with Alphabet, the American company that runs Google. Samsung should also take this opportunity and try bringing more 5G phones instead of 4G in India.

Samsung boasted its ‘Go Paper-free’ Initiative in India
In the last 12 months, Samsung Service Centers in India have saved over 17 million sheets of paper, thanks to its “Go Paper-free” Initiative. In the last two years since the launch of the initiative, more than 33 million sheets of paper have been saved till now.
The company’s service centers across the country had gone paperless as part of a global initiative to offer customers an eco-conscious alternative to paper documents. Samsung also boasted that India was one of the first countries to adopt the paper-free system with more than 11,000 service centers in 180 countries.
The pilot project that was kicked off in July 2021 across the country has given a sustainable solution to customers. Apart from the savings in paper usage, what this means for customers is faster transactions at the Samsung service centers and contact-less exchange between consumers and service executives.
“Our service centres across India have followed paperless operations that offer an eco-conscious alternative for two years now. This brings in a lot of convenience for customers as it reduces transaction time and they no longer need to take care of physical documents,” said Sunil Cutinha, Samsung India VP.
All documents previously issued to customers on paper are now being shared over email and WhatsApp, saving 1.5 million A4-sized sheets of paper a month. This also includes replacing internal office work documents at service centers with electronic documents.
Through the global campaign, Samsung expects that approximately 6 million liters of water, 1 will be saved each year. In addition, nearly 526 tons of carbon emissions will be reduced, which can be translated into the amount of carbon absorbed by 61,000 30-year-old pine trees in a year.
