Samsung keeps the first position with a market share of 24.1 percent overall, as well as an impressive 55 percent slice of the premium smartphone pie. Local manufacturers continue to stay out of the top 5.

Although it is a heaven for affordable handsets, India is a key market for the big players in the industry as well. After all, the fact that Apple opened a local production facility should say a lot about the potential of this area. However, Samsung continues to lead the Indian smartphone market, followed by no less than four Chinese brands.

In the last quarter of 2016, the local brands were kicked out of the top 5. For now, they are still unable to bounce back. The data delivered by market research company Counterpoint Research for this year's second quarter reveals the following top five smartphone manufacturers: Samsung, Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Lenovo.

The numbers look good for Samsung, although the Chinese underdogs might hit them hard in the coming quarters. For now, the South Korean giant leads the Indian smartphone market with a 24.1 percent market share, who also holds a solid lead in the premium sector with 55 percent.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
