  6. 6. Highlights of each vendor’s status Samsung: In the third quarter of 2013, Samsung continued to lead the Chinese smartphone market with the largest market share of 18.3%. Compared to the same period in 2012, its sales volume nearly doubled. Apple: Apple was barely able to hold its market share in China in the third quarter of 2013 with the launch of iPhone 5S and 5C in September last year. The iPhone 5S and 5C have been granted access licenses by China's MIIT and will be sold by Apple's first-time partner China Mobile, along with other partners. China Mobile's enormous subscriber base is anticipated to stimulate a significant growth in Apple's market share in China.
  7. 7. Highlights of each vendor’s status Continues.. Lenovo: Lenovo's share in the Chinese smartphone market has reached 13.7%, only second to Samsung's 18.3%. Since the three major Chinese telecom operators have a great influence over the local market, a good relationship with them plays a crucial role to Lenovo, who depends heavily on telecom operators' distribution channels Huawei: As a late comer in the branded smartphone business, Huawei has garnered 9.1% of the Chinese smartphone market and 4.7% of the worldwide market in the third quarter of 2013, ranking fourth globally behind Samsung, Apple, and Lenovo.
  8. 8. Highlights of each vendor’s status Continues.. HTC: HTC targets mainly at the mid-range and high-end smartphone market segments. With its goal to build brand image, HTC is yet to have any deployment strategy for the entry-level segment. To secure its market share of smartphones priced at or over 4,000 RMB, HTC has continued to launch new Butterfly and One series. Xiaomi: Xiaomi used to release a flagship product every six months or so. In mid-2013, Xiaomi launched two Smartphone, namely the flagship MI3 and a value-line model Hongmi. Both Smartphone embodied Xiaomi's core value proposition: high specs at an affordable price.
