New Delhi, March 9 (IANS) Samsung India on Wednesday said that it has received 1,4 lakh pre-bookings for its newly-launched Galaxy S22 series in the country to date, as the company aims to make its premium flagships more accessible to the aspirational users in tier 2 and 3 towns in the country.
The South Korean giant said this is an all-time record in the company’s premium smartphone history in the country.
“It is noteworthy to state that 80 per cent of this pre-booking in India is for Galaxy S22 Ultra. Due to this strong performance of S22 series, we are looking to end the first-half as top player in the premium segment in India,” said Raju Pullan, SVP and Head of Sales and Retail for Mobile business in the country.
Currently, Samsung has over 20 lakh customers in India who use Galaxy S series and earlier Note smartphones.
“Our next target is to make these premium flagship smartphones accessible to the aspirational users in small-town India with the Samsung Finance+ scheme that offers quick, convenient and assured financing options on the complete range of Galaxy devices,” Pullan told IANS.
The company started 2022 on a very strong note with the S22 series.
According to Pullan, for the first time ever, they launched S22 Series with more than 1,800 consumers across 17 cities and also broke the Guinness Book of World Record for the simultaneous unboxing at multiple locations.
“This clearly showcases the consumer love for S22 Series. Our aim is to become the market leader in premium segment by the end of H1,” Pullan noted.
