Most smartphones in the ₹15,000 to ₹20,000 range sold in India will be taken over by 5G technology in 2022 while similar devices under the ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 segment will start getting 5G dominance this year, said Flipkart in its smartphone trend listing for 2022.

Also, 2022 would be a breakthrough year for budget smartphones where more chipset players would be seen entering the segment by introducing flagship features to maintain affordability, said the e-tailer.

A new generation of 5nm chipsets would be widely used to make smartphones faster and more power-efficient, as per the e-tailer.
