Apple has been looking at China for a few years now, and we see that the growth it is having in this country is being incredible, as the iPhone 7 Plus is listed as the second best-selling device in China in 2017, a very important fact for the company because you can see the growth they are having in this region is being very important and they are taking root. Brands with Android can be shaky in China.
According to information from the firm of Counterpoint the iPhone 7 Plus was the second best selling smartphone in China in 2017 and the iPhone 7 with a single camera came in fifth place.
The only device that has overtaken the Apple terminal has been the OPPO R95 that has managed to reign in this country, as you can see in the graph that we have been able to take out of Counterpoint and that I have left at the top of this paragraph.
In China they are saturated with mobile devices and that is why the percentages of the Top 10 are very low . So, getting a foothold in the market is very complicated and this is what Apple has achieved in a traditional Android country, getting a foothold.
It’s good news but will have to continue working to incorporate more Cupertino’s signature in the Chinese country , although it is not easy task for what we have said, there are too many devices and it is complicated to highlight. As you can see in this study there is nothing of Samsung when they are good devices.
We will have to see how the brand evolves in the next few years.
