Taking on Chinese player Xiaomi big time, South Korean tech giant Samsung sold two million phones in its mid-price segment Galaxy A-series in India in just 40 days starting March 1, earning a revenue of $500 million.
Samsung is targeting $4 billion in revenues from its Galaxy A series of phones this year.
Earlier this month, it announced Galaxy A20, its fourth smartphone in the Galaxy A series this year. Galaxy A20 is available in India at Rs. 12,490.
In March, Samsung launched the Galaxy A10, the Galaxy A30 and the Galaxy A50 in two variants.

The revenue turnover from these three phones in 40 days is $500 million,” Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Samsung India, told IANS on Monday.

“When the rest of the portfolio in A series becomes available, we are sure of not only achieving but exceeding our target,” the Samsung executive said, adding that the Galaxy A-series phones will continue to be available across the channels – both online and offline.
