After several years of growth, the pandemic and the lockdown seems to have taken toll on the growth of India smartphone market.  For the first time in many years,  the Indian smartphone market ended 2020 at 150 million units, a 1.7% YoY decline. 

According to the International Data Corporation’s (IDC) Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, though smartphone shipments picked up in the last quarter, the overall numbers for the full year remained below the pre-pandemic level.
