Chinese Phone Companies Trying to Claim to be Indian

  • Chinese companies now want to present themselves completely with India.

Chinese mobile companies have started raising the slogan of Brand India in place of Make in India and Brand China, amid the atmosphere created against China and Chinese goods in the country. It is being told that Chinese phone companies are running campaigns through social media and other advertisements.

According to sources, in any case, Chinese companies now want to present themselves completely with India. On July 20, Manu Kumar Jain, India head of Chinese phone company Xiaomi, tweeted that the Redmi Note 9 phone is Made in India and Made for India. He also tweeted that 99 percent of Xiaomi India's smartphone is made locally and 65 percent of the share in this production is from local resources. Redmi Note 9 on July 30 Pre-series is being investigated. On behalf of Reality, it has even been said that it is an Indian startup company.

According to experts, Xiaomi India has been in India's mobile phone market for the last six years and has been number one in the smartphone market for the last three years. Before now, before the launch of any phone, Xiaomi did not read that it said that where the Yala phone was launched, so far it has a 72 percent share in the Indian smartphone market. Chinese phone companies did not have to claim to be Indian.

Experts say that after the dispute with China over the Ladakh border, the environment created against China in India has made a difference in the attitude of Chinese companies. According to Counterpoint's report, the share of Chinese phones in the Indian smartphone market decreased in the second quarter compared to the first quarter of 2020. In the second quarter, Xiaomi's share fell by one percent to 29 percent, while Realme and Oppo's share fell by three percent each to 11 and 9 percent respectively. Vivo stands at the previous level with a stake of 17 percent.

At the same time, the share of South Korean company Samsung registered a jump of 10 percent in the second quarter compared to the first quarter. The company's stake reached 26 percent.
