Chinese OEMs fill four of top six spots in top market

An analysis by Strategy Analytics of Chinese sales for Q1 2013 (Jan. through Mar.) showed Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930) hanging on to its top spot in the Chinese smartphone market, the world's largest smartphone market.

To score the win Samsung moved 12.5m smartphones in the Asian nation.  This was the first time Samsung had sold more than ten million smartphones in a quarter in China.

The next four manufacturers were all domestic firms: Coolpad in particular is an interesting inclusion.  While Lenovo is already a widely known brand in the U.S. and ZTE/Huawei are gaining exposure as well of late (for better or worse), Coolpad is a relative unknown to U.S. buyers, but a fast-rising star in China.

Apple, Inc. (AAPL) for the second straight quarter has been bumped to sixth place in the valuable market, selling "only" 6.1 million iPhone in the first three months of 2013 in China.  Still, Apple's performance was leagues better than LG Electronics, Inc. (KSC:066570) who moved a mere 100,000 smartphones in the nation, sinking to its worst Chinese performance to date.

Samsung is on pace to sell 390 million smartphone units globally in 2013.  Its flagship Galaxy S IV hit 10 million unit sales in a month, globally.
