The smartphone market surges 4.1pc on optimism, Samsung retains top spot

According to a report published by International Data Corporation’s (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, 4Q19, Bangladesh’s mobile phone market returned to growth in 2019 with a 4.1 per cent annual growth, shipping 29.6 million units during the year.

Samsung Bangladesh retained the top spot in the Bangladesh smartphone market with a total of 16.1% market share in the segment with a sales volume of more than 1.12 million handsets in 2019. Symphony, Transsion, Walton, and Xiaomi settled in the position of second, third, fourth, and fifth, respectively. Also, in terms of market value, for the last three consecutive years, Samsung has also been the market leader in Bangladesh smartphone market, which gives a real insight into its competitiveness towards innovative products.

The overall market is still dominated by feature phones with a 76.6 per cent share and 22.7 million-unit shipments with a 4.9 per cent annual growth. In the smartphone category, a total of 6.9 million smartphones were shipped in 2019, with a 1.4% year-over-year (YoY) growth. The last quarter of the year (4Q19) saw healthy growth in the overall mobile phone shipments as the category grew 19.5% YoY and 16.2% from the previous quarter, contributing 8.8 million shipments to the year.

Last year, the government raised the customs duty on smartphones to 25 per cent from the existing 10 per cent, resulting in a 4.1% decline YoY in 2H19. Whereas the customs duty of feature phones remained the same at 10 per cent, and consequently, it saw a strong recovery with 20.1% YoY growth in 2H19.

As the local governments continue to discourage the CBU (Completely Built Units) import across countries, it is putting immense pressure on global vendors to diversify their production plants in key geographies to meet the local demand. Hence, the country saw a shift in local manufacturing as three out of four smartphones shipped in 4Q19 were locally assembled from just one-fourth smartphones assembled in 1Q19.

As per the latest data of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC), in 2019, the number of locally assembled smartphones increased to 20 lakh from 7 lakh in the previous year. In 2018, the government allowed nine companies to assemble mobile phone handsets locally.

The companies are Fair Electronics, Walton Digi-Tech Industries, EDISON Industries, Carlcare Technology BD, Alamin and Brothers, Anira International, OK Mobile, Transsion Bangladesh, and Best Tycoon (BD) Enterprise.

According to the Bangladesh Mobile Phone Manufacturing Association (BMPMA), global brand Samsung’s plant assembles 96 per cent of the products it sells locally.

Samsung Galaxy M40: Midrange beast

Recently, Samsung has been focusing on producing budget-friendly phones. This market strategy is no doubt implemented to capture the Indian market; which has in recent times been enamored with Xiaomi phones. For a subcontinental behavior which demands more for less, Samsung has provided phones like the M20/30 and the A30. This phone is more of the same strategy, but for a slightly higher price point. The Galaxy M40 might be the best option to go for on a roughly 30K budget. 

First impression and specs

Out of the Galaxy M line of phones, this has the most processing beef; due to the Snapdragon 675 processor along with 6 GB RAM. The immediate impression upon getting this device in your hand is that Samsung is trying to make this feel like one of the premium phones. That’s the only reason I can think of for getting rid of the headphone jack. It has an Infinity-O display with 91.8% screen to body ratio. It is also a pinhole screen (selfie camera on the screen), no doubt a compensation for the lack of an AMOLED panel. However, watching videos and playing games on this phone is still a treat. The body is polycarbonate material. 

The M40 is USB-C fast charging enabled. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and also offers facial scanning. The device is very light and wieldy, proving significant attention to feel on the hand. Overall, it looks, feels and is modelled after the premium Samsung Galaxy phones. 

Performance and software

While the specs offered are impressive, the utilization of the software on this phone feels a bit underwhelming. As opposed to the similarly priced M30 and A50, the M40 is a more basic experience. The UI is less intuitive and offers fewer options. It is missing some relatively small but important features; like a blue light filter, which Samsung has promised in an update. However, the M40 shows remarkable fortitude while multitasking. It is also very impressive at hardware intensive processes like editing and gaming. The positives are somewhat undercut by the measly 3500 mAh battery, even though it offers fast charging. Overall, a very fast and responsive phone; but leaves you wanting for more. 

Camera

The M40 implements a vertically placed triple camera; with a 32mp primary lens, 5 mp depth sensor and 8mp 123 degree wide lens. There’s a 16mp front camera for selfies. There are a couple of neat features and filters in the camera software that might appeal to you. The picture output of the cameras can be summed up as “good”. It’s not the best out there, but it’s good enough given the specs and the price. Pictures look natural and vibrant with rich colors. And the only weakness of the camera seems to be blurry edges and a slight lack of detail. The real magic happens while capturing videos, as this seems to be the best stabilization on a camera at this price range. 

Verdict

While the lack of a headphone jack makes me want to remove this phone immediately out of consideration, the truth is that the M40 is a very reasonable choice at the price point. The similarly priced A50 might be a bit better for efficiency-oriented individuals. But the premium looks and feel the M40 offers places it into an entirely different bracket. Go for this if you want a good looking, ultraslim and wieldy, decent smartphone.

Camera: The handset has a triple camera setup at the back, consisting of a 48-megapixel main sensor and an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. A 16- megapixel camera is also attached for creating amazing selfies.

Processor: The Exynos 9611 octa-core processor of the smartphone is capable of delivering unparalleled gaming experience without any hiccups. It is run by the Android 9 Pie version.

RAM: It also sports 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM or storage.

A couple of years later, Samsung launched the world’s first edge-lit TV, before introducing LED TVs in 2009, followed by a groundbreaking development of Smart TVs on 2011, where they enabled internet access on television. From then onwards, Samsung brought many other pioneering developments starting from first curved OLED to the latest QLED 8k TVs.

Currently, Samsung is the largest memory chip manufacturer in the world.
