China smartphone shipments plunge 14% to 396 million units in 2018

Thursday 31 January 2019 | 09:58 CET | News
In 2018, smartphone shipments in China fell to their lowest level since 2013. Smartphone shipments decreased by 14 percent year-on-year to 396 million units in 2018, according to a report from Canalys. The report shows the decline was mainly due to the fact that consumers keep their smartphones for longer, a factor considerably amplified by the economic slowdown in China and consumers' weakened purchasing power.
