In 2017, shipment volume of 1000RMB-level smartphones occupied about 50% of total shipments. The main brands within this segment were Huawei, Xiaomi, Lenovo, and Meizu, and the R&D design of their products mainly through Wingtech, Hua Qin, Wind, Longcheer and other ODM companies.
Looking at 2018, the landscape is changing. There is now intensified competition in the smartphone market and gradually concentrated shipments on a small number of brands. In addition, there is a reshuffling of the mobile ODM industry and focus in the shipments of smartphones is now concentrated on the top three ODM companies.
