India has overtaken the US to become the second largest smartphone market in the July-September 2018 quarter, according to a report by research firm Canalys. India — which saw a shipment of 40.4 million units during the third quarter — was second to China where 100.6 million smartphones were shipped, the data showed.
Smartphone shipment in the US was at 40 million units in the July-September 2018 period.
“India overtook the US this quarter to be the second largest market, though both countries were hit by weaker seasonal performance compared with last year,” it said.
