Huawei and Alcatel collectively had a 24 per cent overall market share.
According to CyberMedia Research’s (CMR) report, Reliance Retail’s shipments declined 24 per cent when compared to the previous quarter while Huawei witnessed a nine per cent sequential growth in unit shipments due to the growth in shipments of its models — “E3372H-607” and “E5573Cs-609”.
