Samsung tops in China's smartphone market as Apple drops to sixth
was less than 10% in the country during the period, which saw a record 60 million units shipped from China. The metrics firm expects Apple to snap back in the fourth quarter since the Apple iPhone 5 just received regulatory approval to be sold in the country and will launch on December 14th.
China has over 1 billion mobile phone users but less than 20% have 3G connectivity. Similar to the U.S., China's major carriers use subsidies on new phones in order to attract business. China Mobile is the largest carrier in the world and along with China Telecom and China Unicom, the operators have been pushing home-grown devices instead of phones made by the big global names.
