According to the research firm, Vivo achieved a high sell-in in Q1 due to planned stockpiles ahead of the postponed Indian Premier League.

Interestingly, Canalys data revealed that the Indian market recorded an 11.5 percent increase in shipments despite the country going into lockdown in the final week of March.

India is a very important battleground for mobile phone makers as it is the second-largest smartphone market in the world just behind China. In 2019, India's population rose to 1.366 billion.
