Oppo becomes smartphone market leader in China

Beijing, July 26 (IANS) Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is now the leader in the home smartphone market with 23 per cent market share, followed by Huawei with 17.4 per cent and Vivo with 12 per cent, a media report said on Tuesday.

Oppo’s market share right now is also more than both Apple and Samsung combined in China. Apple’s share in China has shrunk to 2014 levels at nine per cent and Xiaomi is at a three-year low with 6.8 per cent.

Back in 2014, Oppo was responsible for less than two per cent of the smartphones sold in China.

By June 2015, Oppo’s share has grown up to 6.1 per cent and now in June this year, its up to a historic high at 22.9 per cent, tech website GSMArena reported.

Prior to this, Huawei and Xiaomi were leading the way. In fact, Xiaomi appears to only make 6.8 per cent of China’s smartphones, down from 15.1 per cent in the previous year.

Oppo R9, sold elsewhere as Oppo F1 Plus, is the best-selling device in June with five per cent market share.

Oppo will be launching its next selfie-focused smartphone, the Oppo F1s, a successor to the popular Oppo F1 device, on August 3.

Billed as a “selfie expert,” the device can have some improvements in the camera compared to that of its predecessor but it’s still not confirmed exactly what will be better this time around.
