    Samsung has clinched its first 5G contract in India, the world's second-largest mobile communications market. India has 1.1 billion mobile subscribers who use 15.3 billion gigabytes of data a month on average. 
    The Korean electronics giant said Thursday that it was chosen as 5G equipment supplier to Bharti Airtel, India's No. 2 mobile provider and the world's No. 4, operating in 17 countries with 490 million customers. 
    Top-ranked Reliance Jio already uses Samsung's 4G equipment. 
    The Korean company accounts for nine percent of the global market for 5G equipment. Samsung's network business president Cheun Kyung-whoon said, "With this order, we will seek a bigger share of the global 5G market."
