It’s a good time to sell smartphones in China. According to stats compiled from DigiTimes, 90.54 million mobile phones were sold in China during the first quarter of 2013, for a gain of 23.5%. Year-over-year the gain was 34%.
75.28 million of those purchased units were smartphones. Smartphone sales rose 32.2% from the fourth quarter and year-over-year the gain was an amazing 141.5%.
So, who had the largest market share? That would be Samsung, with a 17.3% slice of the pie. Lenovo was second with a 13.1% marketshare followed by Coolpad (10.3%), Huawei (10.1%) and ZTE (6.9%). Apple took sixth with just a 6.4% share. Apple will have to make a deal with China’s largest carrier if they want to up those numbers.
