China smartphone shipments grow only 2% in Q1

Monday 16 May 2016 | 14:37 CET | News
Around 102.6 million smartphones were shipped to China in the first quarter of 2016. This represents a mere 2 percent year-on-year growth, as the Chinese smartphone market becomes increasingly saturated and driven mostly by replacement users, according to a report from International Data Corporation (IDC). This growth is similar to the 2 percent year-on-year growth seen in 2015. In 2016, smartphone shipments in China are expected to grow also by 2 percent year-on-year.
