Apple Inc appears to be losing the race in China's smartphone market, after it ranked seventh among the brands on offer in the first half of the year, behind Samsung Electronics Co and domestic mobile phone manufacturers.
Apple shipped 5.2 million smartphones to China as of June, according to a report issued by information and analysis provider IHS on Friday. This accounted for a 7.5 percent share of the total smartphone market in China, and was only about one-third of the share held by market leader Samsung, the report said.
The company also trailed local brands that are largely unknown outside China, including No 2 Lenovo and No 3 Coolpad.
