If you are planning to buy a new tablet, do you know which is the top-end tablet brand? And which tablet is most liked in India. Let us tell you that the trend of online classes and work from home has increased rapidly during the lockdown period. In such a situation, there has been a sharp increase in the demand for tablets. Talking about the June quarter this year, Samsung has emerged as the top tablet brand in India. Samsung has achieved a growth of 220 percent in the June quarter compared to the previous quarter. Its market share stood at 45 percent during this period. This has been revealed by the worldwide report of personal device tracker IDC.
In a press note, Samsung said its tablets have done “extremely well” across mass (less than Rs 20,000), mid (between Rs 20,000 – Rs 40,000), as well as premium (more than Rs 40,000) segments. However, the company has not shared the total units shipped in the last quarter, and the India-specific IDC report remains unavailable. On the global stage, Apple led the tablets market with its iPad portfolio with a 31.9 percent market share in Q2 2021, according to IDC. Apple was followed by Samsung, which shipped 8 million tablets in Q2 2021, registering a 13.3 percent growth year-on-year, and securing a 19.6 percent market share. Lenovo took the third spot with 4.7 million units, securing an 11.6 percent market, followed by Amazon that shipped 4.3 million units, registering a year-on-year growth of 20.3 percent.
