The 4G battle already started with the latter taking a considerable lead in the Indian smartphone market for Dual screen cell phone High speed equipment between India and China.

The local brands are of the opinion that their rivals have dumping cell phones into the country before networks have been properly rolled out. However, the charges were denied by an executive at one of these fast-growing Chinese companies.

The executive said that Indian sellers are having a hard time because the companies that they have been using as a source in China have entered India and this is the reason why Indian companies failed to catch the 4G market.

On the other hand, Indian companies said that these devices may also not be properly enabled for the kind of services the 4G rolled out in India. Chinese companies are treating India as a "dump" for 4G phones that may not have band 3 or the 1800 MHz band, said Vikas Jain, co-founder of Micromax, India No. 2 phone seller.

This is one of the two bands on which India has 4 G LTE services, the other is 2300 Mhz.

Pardeep Jain, Karbonn Mobiles MD, believes that Chinese manufacturers have been dumping overstock 4G and the game price is gaining market share. "Are you concerned that all manufacturing facilities in India are coming so what are you doing now? These companies have mispredicted the market demand in China and are now dumping that extra inventory in India at a lower cost," he said.

Bharti Airtel has launched 4G services commercially, while Reliance Jio, Idea Mobile and Vodafone India will either do so later this year or in 2016.

Arvind Vohra, Country CEO and managing director of Gionee India, has a different story to tell. He said the company's phones are priced higher than those sold by local rivals and are of excellent quality. "Our prices of the devices is much higher than the Indian players. Our devices are world class. There is no question of us dumping inferior products in India."

The question arises, why are Chinese phone makers ahead of local sellers? It's because they made early progress. Chinese cell phone makers Lenovo, Xiaomi, Huawei and Gionee account for 12% of the total India smartphone market in the 2nd quarter, up to two times that of a year ago, according to IDC.

As for 4G Phones, Chinese players have 45% of the Indian manufacturer market less than 10%. Samsung, who sells most of the phones in India, is also leading in 4G. The segment rose 150% in the June quarter from the previous one.

The other reason is Chinese companies have also been using the online model in India. "Keys to the success of Chinese vendors' popular lightning sales via online players such as Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon," said Kiran Kumar, senior analyst at IDC-India.

"At the same time, they are also getting more 4G phones at affordable $ 100-150 (Rs 6,700-10,000) price points that are left unattended by Indian and global providers."
