iPhone 15 Pro Max overtakes Mate 60 Pro as China’s best-selling phone in October – Find out why!

The top-selling smartphones in China for October 2023 have been revealed and surprisingly, the iPhone 15 Pro Max emerged as the leader with a 5% share of the market. The Huawei Mate 60 Pro, powered by the homemade 7nm Kirin 9000s 5G SoC, followed closely behind in second place with a 4% market share.

It was also a big month for Apple, as the iPhone 15 Pro secured third place with a 4% market share and the iPhone 15 claimed fifth place with a 3% share. Rounding out the top five, the Honor X50 from former Huawei sub-brand Honor finished in the fourth spot with a 3% market share.

This data is significant for Huawei, which faced sanctions from the U.S. in 2019, impacting the company’s ability to access its U.S. supply chain and cutting-edge chips. As a result, shipments for Huawei plunged to 35 million in 2021. However, there is hope for a turnaround, as the company is expected to deliver up to 100 million units this year.

Despite the challenges, Chinese brands continue to innovate and compete in the global smartphone market, with the top-selling smartphones in China reflecting a mix of Chinese and international brands. This data also sheds light on the preferences of Chinese consumers and the fierce competition among smartphone manufacturers in the region.

As the smartphone market continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how Chinese brands like Huawei navigate the changing landscape and regain their foothold in the global market. Additionally, with Apple’s strong performance in the Chinese market, it is clear that international brands continue to have a significant presence and influence in the world’s largest smartphone market.
