China  maintained its position as the largest smartphone market worldwide. Now, smartphone shipments accounted for 88% of total handset volumes in China, up from 70% one year ago.

Samsung remained in first place, being chased by Lenovo, Huawei and others. Meanwhile, Xiaomi improved its position in the market due to multiple popular new models. Coolpad increasingly looks like it has peaked.
