Smartphone sales in China increased last year, while the ranking of the manufacturers has changed. Smartphone sales in the fourth quarter increased by 7.9 percent in China year on year – the International Data Corporation (IDC) research firm said in a report yesterday.


In the fourth quarter of the last year, 117.3 million smartphones were sold in China, 7.9 percent more than the year before. Last year, a total of 434.1 million units were sold, 2.5 percent more than a year ago.

Samsung was kicked out of the rankings: the top-three firms were Huawei with a 17.9 percent market share, followed by Apple’s 17.1 percent and Xiaomi’s 16.9 percent in the quarter. (MTI)
