smartphones sold in Russia for a year.
In 2017 in Russia was established the historical record for smartphone sales. This was told to the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the three Russian retailers — M. Video, MTS and Euroset.
According to M. Video, a year in Russia has sold 28 million smartphones, which represents an increase of 5% compared with the year 2016. MTS and Euroset claim an even greater number — 28.5 million units. At the same time representatives of all three retailers noted that sales volume is a historical record for the Russian market.
According to retailers, this result was achieved thanks to ochetnosti with which the Russians are buying smartphones on credit, as well as special offers and interest-free installments.
