A report by research firm Canalys disclosed that Motorola has become the fourth largest smartphone brand in India by shipping 955,650 smartphones in Q2, 2014. On the other hand, Nokia sold just 633,720 units during the same time period. The report comes as a shocker as it is quite opposite from the first quarter of 2014, when Nokia sold out 583,160 smartphones units compared to 379,310 units shipped by Motorola. The soar up in the second quarter gave heads up to Motorola to top over Nokia for the first half of the year. The number of smartphones shipped by Motorola from January to June period sums up to 1.33 million units as compared to 1.21 million by Nokia.
For the last quarter, Samsung reigned the top smartphone manufacturer spot in India by shipping 4.4 million units. That compares to the 3.1 million and 1.07 million shipped by domestic firms Micromax and Karbonn, respectively. The Indian smartphone market grew 9% in the period from Q2, 2014.
