SEOUL, May 13 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co. ranked first in the Indian premium smartphone market in the first quarter, beating Apple Inc. and Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus, data showed Wednesday.

The research firm attributed Samsung's increased sales to positive consumer reactions to Samsung's high-end S20 Ultra, which has a 108-megapixel camera, as well as discounts and cash-back offers.

Still, Counterpoint Research said the upward trend in sales may not continue in the second quarter due to India's lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic.
