Sales of the iPhone 12 lineup in the China market were outperformed expectations in the fourth quarter of 2020, reaching a rather amazing 18 million units for an over 20% share of the Chinese market, DigiTimes reports, citing data available from the local media.
The staggering fourth-quarter iPhone 12 shipments helped push Apple’s share in China’s handset segment to over 20% in fourth-quarter 2020 and reduced the combined share of Chinese brands to about 78%, said the sources, citing market data.
The better-than-expected Q4 sales hurt the market share numbers for Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo, which accounted for more than 90% of China’s smartphone market before the iPhone series launch.
