While Google is considering shutting down its tablet business, Samsung, on the other hand, clearly wants to focus more on it. Latest reports suggest that the Korean giant is working on launching not one, not two, but a total of three tablets in India. What’s more, is that all these tablets could be coming as soon as next week.
The tale of tablets in India
In 2018, Samsung had a 50% market share (by value) and 49% market share (by volume), according to German research firm Gfk. “We received double-digit growth last year in India and this year, we are aiming for 20% growth in the otherwise stagnant tablet space in the country this year,” said Aditya Babbar, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India. Adding on, he said, “Tablets are now being used more for browsing, shopping, and entertainment experiences. The three new tablets that we are launching with bigger screens and top-of-the-line features will take those experiences to a brand new level.”
As per the reports, the company is working on launching a total of three tablets, namely the Galaxy Tab S5e, the Galaxy Tab A10.1, and the Galaxy Tab A8.
