Though China is undoutedly having a dominant market share in global LTE handset market, its dominace is slowly losing out to the Rest of World, such as most of West European countries and some of emerging countries including India.

India, in particular, has rapidly increased its LTE handset penetration out of total handsets shipped during the quarter, to become the world's 3rd largest LTE handset market for the quarter, ahead of Japan and South Korea, based on the bigger role of operators in LTE handset distribution, intensified competition among the vendors and the introduction of 4G LTE network across the country.
