(Yicai Global) July 31 -- For the first time, the scale of India's smartphone market shrank in the second quarter of this year, with deliveries of less than 27 million, falling 4 percent from last year, said the latest report issued by survey research institute Canalys. Even so, Chinese mobile phone brands' market share still exceeded 50 percent, mainly dominated by Xiaomi Corp., Vivo Mobile Communications Co., OPPO Electronics Corp., Gionee Communication Equipment Co. and Lenovo Group Ltd. [HK:0992]. Xiaomi is expected to surpass Samsung Electronics Co. [KS:005930] to become the top brand on the Indian market,  the report also said. In contrast to Chinese brands' rising market share, Indian domestic cell phone sales dropped sharply, with their proportion only registering 16 percent in the first quarter, while the figure was 49 percent in the same period of 2014.
