China smartphone sales rise 113% to 64.7 mln units in Q4

Saturday 9 February 2013 | 11:49 CET | News
Smartphones accounted for 73 percent of China's mobile phone market in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with 40 percent a year earlier, according to Canalys. Smartphone shipments grew 113 percent to 64.7 million units in the period, with Samsung in first place, followed by Lenovo, Yulong, Huawei and ZTE. Huawei overtook ZTE by over 1 million units. China research director Nicole Peng writes that Apple's pricing and lack of a device on China Mobile are big drawbacks in market with massive growth prospects. She thinks a cheaper iPhone model that also supports TD-SCDMA would "open the floodgates".
