Will other brands follow Samsung?

Following the footsteps of Samsung will other brands also increase prices of their devices? This question comes in everyone’s mind. Chinese brands like Xiaomi, Huawei and Honor have not yet announced an increase in the price of their smartphones for now.

None of the brands have made any official statement yet but it’s only a matter of time before every smart phone brand follows Samsung’s route.

Coming to the dedicated iPhone fans, they will have to experience a huge price hike, since Apple does not have an official store in Pakistan. This leaves them the only option to purchase the Apple’s latest device from third party vendors.

So the already expensive Apple iPhones gets a price hike with the addition of vendors’ commission and the devaluation of Pakistani rupee.

This will amount to a massive increase in the total price of products from companies like Apple, Google, and HTC.
