The smartphone category, which has traditionally been dominated by players like Samsung, Apple, HTC,LG and Sony, is witnessing a lot of action lately as domestic companies like Micromax and S Mobility launch their devices to take on these multinational giants. “We are focussing on evolving from a feature phone brand to a smartphone company. It will take us 2-3 years in the segment to make a mark as it will take time to assure people that our devices are as packed with capabilities as that from any other vendors,” said Kunal Ahooja, Global Head (Devices)- S Mobility.
The company had launched Android-based smartphones last year. This year, it plans to launch eight new devices under ‘Stellar’ as well as double its smartphones sales in the next couple of quarters.
