OPPO, vivo and millet have turned their attention to Southeast Asia after China and India, the two largest smartphone markets in the world, have taken a large share of the market. A report released this month by Canalys, an industry research institute, shows that in the second quarter of this year, China accounted for 62% of the total shipments of 30.7 million mobile phones in Asia, up from 50% in the same period last year.
"New brands are very popular in Southeast Asia, where manufacturers are more likely to succeed than the rest of the world." Matthew Xie, an analyst at Canalys, said in the report that "75% of shipments come from models below $200, and Southeast Asia is mainly engaged in Mid-and low-end smartphones, while brand loyalty in this segment is relatively low."
