13 new Asian smartphone makers hoping to crush Samsung and Apple
Samsung is the world’s – and Asia’s – top smartphone maker.
But there are a lot of rival phone-makers out there aiming to dethrone
the likes of Samsung and Apple. That competition is especially strong
across Asia, where a number of relatively new phone-makers are playing
to their strengths in home markets, aiming to get consumers hooked on
their own keenly-priced but strongly-specced devices.
Let’s look at 13 of the strongest new contenders across Asia. They’re all – individually and collectively – keen to steal sales from more established phone-makers. To quote a Bob Marley song: If you are a big tree, we are a small axe, sharp and ready, ready to cut you down.
Samsung has a lot more to worry about besides these. This is far from
an exhaustive list, and there are more grass-roots smartphone makers
across Asia out there.
Also, let’s not forget that there are some major rivals in the Android space too. Samsung’s closest rival in China is actually Lenovo. And there are plenty more, well-established brands keen to be the top shipper of Android smartphones – like LG, Huawei, HTC, Motorola, to name but four.
Which of our 13 look like the biggest threat? Let us know in the comments.
