Motorola becomes fourth largest smartphone vendor in India: Canalys

Indian smartphone shipment Q2, 2014Within six months of re-entering the Indian market, Motorola Mobility has joined the top five smartphone vendors club in the country, revealed the latest report from research firm Canalys.

The smartphone shipment report from Canalys notes that Motorola shipped a total of 955,650 smartphones in the last quarter, leaving behind Nokia (now Microsoft), which had earlier occupied the fourth spot in the country’s smartphone market. Nokia shipped just 633,720 smartphones in Q2, 2014.

Despite showing an amazing growth, Motorola still trails Samsung, Micromax, and Karbonn in the country, which had shipped 4.11 million, 3.09 million and 1.07 million smartphones respectively in the second quarter.

Overall, the Indian smartphone market grew 9 percent since the first quarter of 2014. The total number of units are unclear right now.

To remind you, Motorola announced its re-entry in the country in February 2014 with the launch of Moto G. It has since launched Moto X and Moto E smartphones. Moto G and Moto E have particulary seen a lot of interest from the Indian consumers.
