The newly launched smartphones — Y336, Y541, Y625 and G620S — will be available under Huawei’s G and Y series between the price range of Rs.5,499 – Rs.9,499.
“To reach out to our consumers in key markets, Huawei range would be available through a strong distribution network in offline retail beginning with a 1,000 stores roll out in the next 4-8 weeks,” said P. Sanjeev, director – sales (devices business), Huawei Telecommunications India.
“For the brand new series, we will be strengthening our presence with traditional multi-brand retailers and by partnering with top modern trade players such as Croma, Reliance Digital, Sangeetha Retail and The Mobile Store in key cities like Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai amongst others,” he added.
The company also aims to gain a 10 percent market share in the budget segment. “We are very bullish on our growth in India and expect to capture a 10 percent market share in the period of one year,” Sanjeev said.
