It looks like Samsung is no longer the top smartphone vendor in China, as Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has knocked the Korean tech giant off of the top spot.
The data you see above comes from market expert Canalys.
It’s understandable that Xiaomi would do well in China. After all, it is a China-based company. However, it’s just a matter of time before the Chinese firm further penetrates other markets outside of Asia, and we won’t be surprised if the firm takes on the Korean tech giant and Apple as another top contender in the global smartphone market.
