After Xiaomi, Samsung has increased the price of its smartphones in Nepal, notably the most popular ones across all price range. Samsung has been a leader in Nepal for long years considering a price-conscious smartphone market. The company sells most mid-range phones in the country and also successfully manages to market its high-end flagship. However, things are changing.
Xiaomi moved on to become the number one smartphone brand of Nepal in Q1 2020. Samsung, owing to a stagnant supply slipped to the number two position. But the most sold smartphone in the Q1 2020 was still the Samsung Galaxy A51. In fact, four out of the top-six most sold smartphones were from Samsung and the remaining two were from Xiaomi.
Clearly, things are not as easy as it once used to be for Samsung. Over a few years, a number of Chinese smartphone makers — Xiaomi, Huawei, Vivo, Oppo, OnePlus have been launching disruptive grade smartphones at aggressive price tags. Samsung, on the other hand, has also been consciously cutting off the prices owing to increased market saturation.
The ongoing lockdown has deserted the smartphone sales in Nepal, especially offline. In India, nearly two months back, Samsung hiked the prices of Galaxy S20/S20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Z Flip following the GST inflation. Now, Samsung has hiked the prices of a number of smartphones in the Nepalese market. Surely, it bet on the ones that were the most popular and the most sold: Galaxy S20/S20 Plus, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy A71, Galaxy A51, and Galaxy A10s.
