India’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7, is now on sale in India.
The Note 7 was released in India on November 7, the same day the Narendra Modi government announced its decision to scrap the demonetisation move.
According to a report in the Times of London, India’s biggest smartphone retailer, Flipkart, is currently the second-largest seller of smartphones in the country, with sales of 1.5 million devices during the first three months of 2017.
Flipkart is India’s largest smartphone retailer and has more than 4,000 stores, according to the report.
The company sells its smartphones through retailers like Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy and BHELP.
In August, the company said it would sell the Note 7 at the price of Rs. 29,999 ($550), up from the current Rs. 19,999.
The company said the new price was “in line with the industry norms”.
The move is part of the government’s efforts to make the economy more competitive, said Vijay Chawla, CEO of Flipkarts.
