2012 Smartphone Statistics: Samsung Tops China For The First TimeMarch 11, 2013 9:48 am
Samsung sold some 30 million plus smartphones in China in 2012. Well that might not be the most important stat we spotted in that context – Samsung is now the top smartphone seller in China, with a 17 plus percentage market share – quite an achievement for a company that only started selling smartphones in China in 2009 (Source)
So we have another ‘millions’ stat coming out – how do we digest this stat? I think this one is easy – we know that between Apple and Samsung, some 98 percent plus profits of the smartphone market worldwide is shared. This is an indication of who the other players are – in China, that would be Lenovo, Huawei and others.
