China is a massive market for smartphone makers, but it is also a rather special one. Samsung is almost anonymous there, while Apple is the only brand from the outside with a noticeable presence. Although Huawei is leading the Chinese smartphone market overall, the best-selling handset for 2017 was the mid-range Oppo R9s.

According to Counterpoint Research, bezel-less handsets "made a big buzz in the market" in the second half of 2017, and the Chinese smartphone market closed the year with a flat growth. The list of the top 5 best-selling smartphones in China for 2017 is quite surprising, as you can see below: 

The next ones in the list are the Oppo R11 and the Vivo Y66. The most popular Huawei handset is the Honor 8 Lite, with a market share of only 1.9 percent. The other Huawei smartphone to make it in the top 10 is the Honor Enjoy 6X, which got the last position with a share of 1.7 percent. Between them, we find the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X.

Although the numbers mentioned earlier might seem small, the average monthly sales of all these models exceeded 1 million. Obviously, most of them are mid-range handsets, except the two Apple handsets.

Counterpoint Research expects that this year's top 10 models will feature a bezel-less display, while consumers will continue to focus on affordable models with a main camera setup that is capable of providing mobile photography results above the average.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
