Samsung launches touchscreen phone at Rs 4,000

28 Jul

Our friends at FoneArena are reporting that Samsung Champ, an entry-level touchscreen phone is now available in India for approximately Rs 4,000. The Champ has a 2.4 inch touchscreen, a 1.3 MP camera, FM radio and music player, video player, Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP and a 3.5 mm audio headset jack. It has a 1,000 mAh battery, which Samsung claims is good enough for 12 hours of talktime.

The Champ is Samsung’s reaction to homegrown brands like Micromax, Karbonn and others, which have for long provided touchscreen phones at dirt cheap prices. We expect a few more touchscreen phones at similar price points from Samsung before the end of the year. Such phones will certainly hit Samsung’s margins apart from the risk of cannibalising its popular Corby series of phones. However, phones like the Champ will give Samsung some arsenal to keep homegrown brands at bay and also increase its market share in India at the expense of Nokia, which has been slow to react to changes in the market, both in terms of user expectations and competition from local brands.
