according to IDC research (Source: Reuters) Related News The global smartphone market has registered a growth of 43 per cent in Q1 2017 according to research firm IDC Smartphone vendors shipped a total of 3474 million units worldwide last quarter up 43 per cent from the 3322 million units in Q1 2016 Despite the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco Samsung once again shipped more smartphone units than any other player The company regained the top slot from Apple during the first quarter with shipments of 792 million smartphones Samsung’s position was bolstered by deep discounts on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge which actually helped clear out of inventory and make room for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ The J-series and A-series also drove significant volumes in both emerging and developed markets the research firm said Apple which took the second spot remained largely flat during the quarter despite the introduction of its new Red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and refreshed iPhone SE The Cupertino-based company slipped 05 per cent (to 149 per cent) as shipments were up by 400000 to 516 million Apple will officially reveal its iPhone sales for the quarter on May 2 Samsung Apple and Huawei have retained their top positions with 228 per cent 149 per cent and 98 per cent shares of the global smartphone market respectively while Oppo and Vivo rounded out the top five respectively “Despite all the popularity and media hype around premium devices we continue to witness a shift in many companies’ portfolios geared towards affordable devices with premium-type styling compared to flagship models said Anthony Scarsella research manager with IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker “Companies have started to implement a single premium design language that ultimately blurs the lines between the high-end and the low-end allowing the average consumer to jump on the brand without a hefty upfront investment” he added What is interesting in IDC’s report is that it sees the Chinese OEMs like Huawei OPPO and vivo are the main players boosting smartphone growth The research firm notes that these companies have “outpaced market growth for over a year now” which is significant These players are continuing to grow in double digits which the overall smartphone market has now slowed down to single digit growth Oppo shipped 256 million smartphone units in this quarter and saw a yearly growth of 298 per cent while vivo shipped 181 smartphones IDC’s report also notes that both brands have boosted their presence in India which is one of the most important smartphone markets in

and his outreach was fantastic But till the Obama presidency part of Modi’s global authority depended upon not acquiring a reputation for growing intolerance It is much easier for India to project authority when its own foundations are liberal and secure The Trump presidency has altered that global norm Liberal values always a hypocritical currency in global affairs can now simply be damned It is not entirely a coincidence that as Trump has given short shrift to liberal values the sense has grown in this regime that more assertive Hindutva will not have any reputational costs for India We won’t get the sermons on diversity and tolerance that we got from Obama What India has done is to use the normative vacuum created by Trump to advance an aggressive Hindutva agenda even more vigorously because this now has no reputational or peer displeasure attached to it India should not get ahead of itself; its democracy has flaws But being an exemplar of the free world is a far more befitting and ennobling ambition than using this vacuum in international affairs to damage our reputation for liberal constitutionalism with impunity Rather than take a lead we are following Trump’s example in frittering away our biggest strength Modi’s handshake with Trump would be so much more a show of power if it had the imprimatur of liberal values than simply a deal for Lockheed Martin behind it Trump has constructed a mythology that America is now more transactional and isolationist But neither is strictly speaking true If transactional simply means business deals can trump norms America has often been transactional But Trump is not isolationist The global order is more precarious because American ad hoc interventionism is now likely to be more extensive Trump’s forays into West Asia signal some things very clearly: The United States is not going to leave that region alone it will continue to actively meddle take partisan sides and will most likely create the conditions for more turmoil The GCC which had been insulated from the wider turmoil of the region now risks being drawn in; America’s Syria policy seems less about ISIS and more about showing the Russians they cannot have their way; America is backsliding on its rapprochement with Iran a key element to any hope for preventing more conflict in the Middle East and Afghanistan While the immediate rhetoric from Washington is on Russia the enduring axis of conflict and competition will remain China Trump’s characteristically ambiguous tweet thanking China for “trying” to help in North Korea is a signal that the North Korea card will buy China goodwill only up to a point China has also upped the stakes by pursuing a more aggressive global agenda Trump will pivot back to the China threat sooner or later But the global system now risks being pushed into a corner where neither China nor the US will find it easy to compromise Throw in two more elements arising out of domestic politics in America and the world system is looking riskier Trump does not have much pushback from the Republicans His own political survival will also require keeping the spectre of global conflict alive even more than has been the case with past presidents The American military industrial complex is about to get even more active and interventionist not isolationist While India can sense some strategic opportunities in these tensions surely it behoves it to say very candidly that the US is playing with fire in stoking more conflict These conflicts are not ours; but it is in our interests to throw cold water on them On a range of other issues that we have been told to avoid from climate change to multilateralism India has a strong hand; it should play them with any eye to posterity Modi likes to be a cool prime minister History will remember him more kindly if India performed the function of a cool and cooling power in the international system We need to be more liberal less transactional and more internationalist Worry about history not about getting the approval of Trump The writer is president CPR Delhi and contributing editor ‘The Indian Express’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: June 8 2017 10:16 pm Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal (PTI/File) Related News A Delhi court on Thursday asked the Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) to maintain maximum vigil with regard to safety of a man who had filed a complaint against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others for alleged irregularities in grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines here “Maintain maximum vigil in his case” Metropolitan Magistrate Rakesh Kumar Rampuri said and posted the matter for further hearing on June 23 The court’s response came after the agency filed a status report saying there is no threat to the life of complainant Rahul Sharma The court had on June 2 directed the additional commissioner of the ACB to assess the threat perception with regard to Sharma once again after he submitted that on May 30 two unidentified persons on a motorcycle fired gun shots at him when he was travelling in his car along with a cousin “There is no threat to the life of Sharma or his relatives in Gautam Budh Nagar Noida” the report filed by the Senior Superintendent of Police of the area said Advocate V K Anand the counsel for Sharma also filed a fresh plea seeking a status report on the three separate FIRs which were registered by the agency on its own on May 8 in relation to the alleged irregularities in granting contracts The court had earlier also directed the probe agency to assess the threat perception and the ACB had concluded that there was no threat at that time The magistrate had said that witness protection was a serious issue not only in this case but in general The court was hearing a complaint filed by Sharma founder of Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO) seeking a direction to the police to lodge an FIR against Kejriwal his brother-in-law Surender Bansal proprietor of a construction firm and a public servant for alleged irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines in Delhi Bansal died last month However the court said it would also decide on the next date of hearing as to whether it has jurisdiction to continue with the matter as the FIR has already been lodged by the ACB under the Prevention of Corruption Act Cases pertaining to the ACB and under the Prevention of Corruption Act are tried by a special court The complaint has alleged “deep-rooted corruption” and that no material was actually purchased for executing the projects It has alleged that documents showing purchase of material were “concocted and forged” and a loss of over Rs 10 crore had been caused to the public exchequer The complainant has alleged that Bansal operated through several dummy firms to obtain government contracts with the connivance of several senior PWD officials These contracts never got executed “whereas shockingly all the payments were cleared under pressure from Kejriwal” he has alleged For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related Newslabourers on Suhagiya’s field for the last nine months.Khambha police have registered a case of accidental death and startedfurther investigation For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by ENS Economic Bureau | New Delhi | Published: April 4 2013 9:52 pm Related News Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley hit out at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the UPA Thursday saying its model of governance was faulty as the elected head of government did not have the last worda day after the PM said the government was working hard to revive growth The elected head of the government must have the last word But the PM has to follow the instructions of his party?
