Lenovo’s decision to explore offline market is not entirely surprising as about eighty percent population still prefers to buy smartphones offline and that’s precisely the why brands like Oppo, Vivo, and Gionee, who have a strong presence in offline realms, continue to gain market share. Online champions like Xiaomi and OnePlus have opened up their offline stores in select cities as well.
