4 Tech Giants Are Eating Up China’s Smartphone Market

China’s smartphone market is increasingly dominated by four big players: Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi.

According to a report from marketing and analytics firm Canalys, the Chinese smartphone market shrunk by more than 21 percent year over year, from 114 million shipments in Q1 2017 to only 91 million in Q1 2018. Eight of the top 10 smartphone vendors saw declining sales, including smaller players Gionee, Meizu, and Samsung (in China, anyway), which are fighting for a smaller piece of the pie.
