Over the past few years, the mid-range segment in the Indian smartphone market has seen a remarkable transformation. Brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, Realme and Samsung continue to offer exceptional phones, while brands like OnePlus, and to everyone’s surprise, even Apple decided to move down the price ladder. OnePlus unveiled its OnePlus Nord smartphone earlier this year, while Apple too had signaled its intent to offer mid-range and mid-premium phones with the iPhone SE 2020 edition.
The mid-range segment is extremely competitive, with all the smartphones brands going toe-to-toe with each other to capture a larger market share. These brands offer smartphones that, in design, resemble the premium models, and when it comes to functionality, one could argue that mid-range phones offer the best value for their money. Brands try to pack as many features as possible in these devices, with quad-rear camera configurations, 6-8GB RAM, faster processors and larger batteries, just to name a few features. And in order to stay one step ahead, brands continue to roll out models at a faster rate in this segment.
