OnePlus celebrates India achievements, mocked Apple on Twitter
« on: February 01, 2019, 01:50:24 PM »


When it comes to global smartphone shipments, OnePlus isn’t exactly a force to be reckoned with. How could it be with only two handset models released every year, a modest presence in the offline retail channel, and five years of steady but slow manufacturing progress?

The brand was also pretty much nonexistent in the US market until recently, instead relying on India for a large chunk of its inexpensive flagship device sales. Believe it or not, OnePlus has been the most successful smartphone company in the country’s premium segment for the past three quarters, narrowly beating Samsung and totally crushing Apple, according to Counterpoint Research.

OnePlus India couldn’t let the achievement go unnoticed and uncelebrated, “daring” iPhone users on Twitter to ask Siri “which is India’s No.1 premium smartphone.” The answer may not be as simple as you expect, but it’s definitely not the iPhone XS or iPhone XR.

Overall, Samsung was still ranked number one in the India premium market for the entire past year, with a 34 percent slice of total shipments, compared to 33 percent for OnePlus and a relatively modest 23 percent Apple share.
