SAMSUNG USED TO be the top smartphone vendor in the lucrative Chinese market, but it has been overtaken by local rival Xiaomi.According to a report from research group Canalys, Xiaomi saw its second quarter sales in China increase by 240% from a year earlier, taking a 14% share in the world’s largest smartphone market.This was put down in part to increasing sales of its low-cost RedMi range, while Samsung’s fall to second was put down to the “rapidly shifting demand towards 4G handsets” thanks to a 4G push by China Mobile, the nation’s largest carrier. This was the first time Samsung fell to second place in China since the end of 2011.On the other hand, Apple registered a strong year-on-year growth of 58%, down to its position as “one of few high-end device options available to consumers looking to use 4G services” said the report.China still remains the world’s largest smartphone market in the latest quarter, accounting for 37 % of global shipments, or 108.5 million. Globally, Canalys said that 292.4 million smartphones were shipped during this quarter, up 23% from the previous year and 5% from the first quarter.Samsung still remains the top smartphone maker globally with a 26% share of the market, but Canalys noted it was the lowest share it’s had in two and a half years. Xiaomi’s position in China means it’s now one of the top five manufacturers in the world, making up 5% of the market.Read: Google pulls ‘Bomb Gaza’ game from app store after backlash >Read: Find your phone’s bar signal too vague?
