Samsung lost most of the Sales in low and low-mid segment to the Chinese Smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi, Gionee and Indian manufacturers mainly Intex and Micromax
The growing segment is of users who are shifting from Feature-phone to Smartphone and this market is primarily catered by Intex.
Samsung is not an On-line Model company, Tentatively Samsung has to spend more money on Marketing as compared to Xiaomi and One-plus.
Low Sales and wrong forecast of Galaxy S6 forced Samsung to reduce the price of both Models Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in tune of 130 – 180 $.
Way forward for Samsung mobiles
Samsung plan to increase Model line up specially in Low-Mid range to counter Xiaomi.
In Mid range, Samsung may introduce a mass market Smartphone to counter One-plus
Adjust the price of Galaxy S6 to reduce inventory and increase demand
Fulfill the growing demand of Galaxy S6 Edge
Launch new Models in Big Screens between 5″ – 5.5″
More efficient Tie-up with local and overseas carriers
