Samsung's phone sales surge 67pc
Manama, March 24, 2014
Samsung Electronics has seen 67.3 per cent growth in mobile phone sales in Bahrain from 2012 to last year, said a report.
The growth was fuelled by wide acceptance of Samsung's line-up of smartphones in the country, Samsung Gulf Electronics head of telecommunications group Hayssam Yassine said.
The company has performed well in the rest of the GCC markets too.
In the Gulf, Samsung recorded a 42.2 per cent increase following the launch last year of Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and a portfolio of mid-range-feature phones and smartphones.
"The mobile phone market in Bahrain is developing exponentially, and Samsung has kept up by doubling down on innovative features and superior hardware across all of our mobile phone lines," Mr Yassine told the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
"Last year, we introduced a range of mobile phones that were designed to integrate into the lives of our customers - whether they were looking to get the best in gaming, viewing, or photography - and to do so at different price points, he stated.
"These numbers show that our efforts have been successful, and are on par with what people really want from their handhelds," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
