Meanwhile, IDC India released India Smartphone City Level Research. Intex is at 4th position in Q4 2015 in the top 30 cities, with a wide and affordable range of smartphone models under $100 price segment which is generating huge volumes for the channel partners with increased visibility and reach in tier 2 and 3 markets in India.

In Q4 2015, Intex fell to the fourth position in the Indian smartphone market. The drop in ranking is despite 40.9 percent increase in smartphone shipments in Q4 2015. 3G based devices in sub-$100 segment contributed to Intex’s smartphone growth. IDC noted that the vendor has limited portfolio of LTE based devices currently but is expected to launch a slew of 4G models in the coming quarters to gain share in this category.
