Smartphone sales in China reached an all-time monthly high of 30 million units in August. The smartphone penetration of the total handsets sold also reached a record high of 91 percent, topping many developed markets such as USA which reached 87% during the same month. Most of the contribution came from the domestic players such as Lenovo, Huawei, Coolpad, Xiaomi, and ZTE boosted by their broader smartphone portfolio and expanding distribution reach. These vendors realized healthy sell-through after a channel inventory built-up in July, according to Counterpoint Research.
