Samsung India is thanking Xiaomi, here’s why
NEW DELHI: Since the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones, the company’s Chinese arch rival Xiaomi has been taking jibes at the South Korean tech giant on social media. From being “‘M’ean” to ‘M’ic drop moments (hinting at the new Galaxy M series), Xiaomi’s social media team has gone all out to boast how good the upcoming Redmi Note 7 smartphone would be and why people should avoid buying the new Galaxy M series phones.

While Xiaomi and it’s global VP Manu Jain has always been quite vocal, Samsung, on the other, has largely refrained from commenting on its competitors. However, in the wake of the almost series of recent potshots at the new Galaxy M series from Xiaomi, Samsung has finally broken its silence over the comments.

In an exclusive interaction with The Times of India-Gadgets Now, Ranjivjit Singh, senior vice president & head, mobile marketing, Samsung India said, “All I can say is thank you [to Xiaomi] for talking about us [Samsung]. We talk about consumers while you [Xiaomi] are talking about us.”

Talking about the response to Galaxy M series, Singh said, “We are overwhelmed by the response from the Indian smartphone buyers. The Galaxy M series is by far one of the best launches we have made and we are very confident about the future launches in the M series. We have hit a sweet spot in the market and we are very happy.”

Samsung is reportedly now gearing up to launch the third smartphone in its newly-launched Galaxy M series. To be called Galaxy M30, the smartphone is expected to launch in early March and will be priced below Rs 16,000. Apart from the Galaxy M series, Samsung is also planning a new range of A-series smartphones that too would be launched soon. These smartphones too are likely to be priced under Rs 10,000.
