China Smartphone Market Dynamics:

The key factor for these Chinese smartphones' phenomenal sales is the price range they come in and the affordability they offer to entice users from all sorts of the spectrum. In the first quarter of 2020, Xiaomi released its first 5G phone, the Redmi (k305G), for $300. Apple attempted to follow in the footsteps of Xiaomi and other companies by releasing the iPhone 12 mini for $699, while Samsung attempted to do the same with the 'A' series, a mid-range phone series with prices ranging from $279 to $499. Another factor is that, while Apple and Samsung only offer premium and ultra-premium phones that are released once a year, other companies sell mid-range and affordable phones with a wide range of features that are very comparable to those of the iPhone and Samsung. China is among the global leaders in 5G adoption due to its fast deployment of the technology. In 2020, the region had gained more than 200 million 5G connections, giving it an 87% share of worldwide 5G connections. Aggressive network rollout and a robust device ecosystem are helping to drive 5G adoption in China. Despite the emergence of Covid-19, Chinese operators installed over 600,000 new 5G base stations in 2020 and have plans to install even more in 2021. Furthermore, 5G networks in Hong Kong and Taiwan now cover more than 90% of the population, ranking both markets among the first in the world to achieve this milestone. Due to the rapid transition to 5G, 4G adoption in China has reached its pinnacle. In 2020, 4G adoption fell for the first time, and it is expected to continue to fall in the forecast period as consumers migrate to more abundant 5G services. Chinese consumers are keener to upgrade to 5G than consumers in any other market. This is supported by mainland China's growing percentage of 5G device sales: 163 million 5G handsets were sold in 2020, accounting for roughly 53% of total smartphone shipments. In mainland China, the COVID-19 pandemic has been effectively suppressed, with only a few new cases recorded locally in the third quarter of 2020. China's GDP increased by 4.9% in Q3, up from a 6.8% decline in Q1 and a 3.2% growth in Q2. Despite the recent uptick in activity and a lower unemployment rate, local consumption in China has remained lackluster. In September 2020, the measured unemployed rate in China's city regions increased by 0.2% points, while the surveyed unemployment rate among college graduates aged 20 to 24 increased by 4% points. Despite smartphone OEMs' efforts to boost sales during the post-Covid-19 pandemic recovery period in the third quarter, total market demand in China remained static. In China, OPPO and Vivo sales were down year over year, but up from the previous Q3 quarter of 2020, due to the strong performance of their new flagship series. The highlight was OPPO's Reno 4/Reno 4 Pro 5G, which had a 90% increase in sales in the first quarter compared to its predecessors. This is due to its strong performance, the OPPO Reno 4 5G looked to be the only 5G smartphone mentioned in China's top-selling smartphone list, except Huawei's. China Smartphone Market 1
