Samsung is the number one smartphone seller in China

According to a leaked research report from Strategy Analytics, Samsung for the first time has become the biggest smartphone vendor in China by selling the highest number of smartphones in 2012.
However, the research report has not been made public, according to a Strategy Analytics spokesman. The research report states that Samsung has sold nearly triple amount of devices in China last year. In 2012, they sold 30.06 million smartphones, up from 10.9 million units the year before.
Samsung is now the leading smartphone seller in the world’s largest market with 17.7% market share. Lenovo, which is the Chinese electronics giant, came close after Samsung in second place. Apple with an 11% market share, moved back up into China’s top five smartphone vendors.
Local vendors like Huawei and Coolpad are also doing well. They took 9.9% and 9.7% market share respectively.
Demands for smartphone are increasing day by day in China. According to the statement from the research farm, smartphone shipments in China increased by more than 75%, year-on-year to “record levels” in the fourth quarter of 2012.
