Last month, more than 50,000 TVs were
sold. In a conversation with Gadgets 360, Woo Television CEO Devita Saraf said that last month, more than 50,000 TVs were sold and emerged as the number one TV brand in the country. “Affordability is, of course, the number one reason we’re doing such high volume in 4K TVs,” said Saraf.
Saraf also mentioned that Wu did not see any stiff competition from newcomers including OnePlus and Realme. “I don’t think that’s really a bet for us.” Maybe these new people are eating into the competition, already eating into the market share of low-cost, cheap players, ”said Saraf.
In 2019, Vu sold more than 6,50,000 TVs, although due to COVID-19, which has affected the purchasing power of individuals and adversely affected supply chains globally, the company increased its total sales for the year. I have not guessed.
