At a time when PC manufacturers are pushing boundaries in launching Next-Gen gaming products, HP Inc has become the leading PC gaming brand in India, a top company executive said.

"In a short span of time, we have become the leading gaming brand in India," Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP India, told reporters.

"With the introduction of the Omen X portfolio for gaming enthusiasts, we created a unified gaming portfolio across gamer profiles and build on the style and performance value proposition the product ecosystem represents," Chandra added.

The launch of Omen by HP devices for mainstream and performance gamers about a year ago marked company's entry into the growing gaming segment.
