Huawei leads Chinese smartphone market as shipments sink 12%

22 August 2018
The Top 4 is all domestic manufacturers while Apple comes in 5th place.

lmao if they're gonna count it that way then OPPO, VIVO and OnePlus should be counted as one, they're all BBK after all.

Anonymous, 22 Aug 2018Hats off to chinese for being loyal to their own brands.Also the chinese companies understand there home market well. People in China care more about value for money than brand. Those who want brand buy Apple

Dr.Core, 23 Aug 2018Ok BBK Electronics is owner of Vivo, Oppo and One + brands ... moreVery true. I don't know it's so difficult for everyone to understand this. Even Lenovo and Motorola sales for the US are combined. But never Oppo and Vivo.

Sorry but in this article isn't about software difference in each brand but the number of shipments of smartphones in PR China, so your view and explanation is totally wrong. In other words the conclusion from article is totally wrong BBK Electronics corp, who is owner of factories where the above mentioned brands are made is the king of shipments.

If you compare this logic you could say Nokia isn't shipping smartphones because that corporation is licensing all brands (Alcatel & Nokia) to TCL and HMD like Blackberry is licensing brand to TCL, so the number of shipments is related to owner of those brands who are at the same time being produced by it.

Samsung is abondoned just because of low quality, gimmick design and high price. I think the same will happen in other countries.

Anonymous, 22 Aug 2018Hats off to chinese for being loyal to their own brands.I'm pretty sure that Chinese are getting special deals for their brands. Not sure how is it now, but Chinese manufacturers were getting help also from government to be competitive.

Anonymous, 22 Aug 2018Wheres the Chinese HMD? Oops right, they’re doing a terrible job.At number 10 in global market. Seeing as how it took them 2 years only, that's impressive. And for God's sake man, it's Finnish and engineered in China

  • Dr.Core

The question is how come you use mathematical operation - addition of separate brands (Huawei and Honor) in other occasion (vivo, oppo) you don't. If you look at numbers and statistics BBK Electronics (owner of Vivo / Oppo brands) has the majority of PRC smartphone market and Huawei is second.

Not too long before it will lead the global smartphone market. Already at 2nd place. Growing fast. Hehe! :D
