Top smartphone vendor in China during April was Samsung
According to  Hong Kong paper Ming Pao Daily, Korean manufacturer Samsung had the largest market share among smartphone vendors in China during the month of April. Based on data from Sino Market Research, Samsung's 18.8% slice of the Chinese smartphone pie gave it a comfortable lead over second place Coolpad, which had 11.5% of the smartphone market in China last month.

Unknown in the U.S., Coolpad is one of a number of domestic smartphone producers who have great numbers in China but are shut out in other countries. Domestic manufacturers accounted for 71% of the smartphones sold in China last month, while international manufacturers were responsible for the remaining 29%.

Lenovo, which said over the weekend that it wants to start selling smartphones in the U.S. next year, was a tad shy of Coolpad's share with 11.2% of the Chinese smartphone market. Huawei and ZTE rounded out the top five with 10.1% and 6.4% of the market respectively.
