Since the launch of iPhone 5S/5C, according to Canalys, Apple surpassed Chinese manufacturers ZTE and MIUI to rank the fifth in China smartphone market in Q3 2013.
Nicole Peng, Research Director of Canalys China, said that in Q3, iPhone shipment increased by 32% quarterly, the total market share reached 6%.
However, Apple’s competitor Samsung’s shipment increased more than 100%, and its market share reached 21% in China. iPhone’s new 5S and 5C were launched on September 20, so the statistics in Q3 could not completely reflect Apple’s market performance.
Lenovo ranked the second with 13% in Q3 2013, followed by Coolpad with 11%. Huawei ranked the fourth with 9% market share. ZTE dropped to the seventh with 5%.
