I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon. I agree Lenovo's sales are nothing to joke about, but meanwhile, Samsung is still going up too.

Ya because i dont know about their phones but i bought 2 of their tablets and were the worst tablets I had ever seen in my life, specially the dull screens with worst viewing angles

Lenovo is competing by losing money, and they rely on Qualcomm and other chip makers for sofware optimisation.
they must invest in research and development to be able to compete with SS, Sony, Apple...

It might happen Im chinese and I know Chinese has hated Koreans forever. If ppl in China suddenly developed national pride, Korea might get boycott like Japan recently.

Since lenovo makes their phones a bit cheaper than samsung, they might have a chance on surpassing samsung in china

Lenovo has a better chance of overtaking samsung in China than any other companies, but in order to beat Samsung outside China they need to put more efforts in distribution. Samsung phones are readily available all over my country (India) but lenovo phones even though they have been officialy launched are hard to find in physical stores.
Lenovo has much better lower mid range phones than Samsung (Galaxy ace duos costs the same as Lenovo P700I and Lenovo S560 is cheaper than ace plus) with much larger battery capacity. But when it comes to mid range and high end phones (the ones that are available in my country) they are no match to Samsung and they need to improve on it.

lenovo can make it what with the wave of growing nationalism in china. and lenovo like all chinese band phones are very cheap compared to foreign brand and quality is good.

Lenovo may not make some of the prettiest products, but they sure do make some of the most durable. Not sure about their phone line of products but their laptops are tanks. Perhaps they'd have some success catering to the Chinese military and police. Over a billion people in China, substantial numbers of police and military personnel... that could be a lot of product sales.
