iPhone X makes gains in China

Competition in the mobile phone market is intense all around the world, particularly as the number of consumers who have yet to adopt smartphone technology is dwindling.

Nowhere is it more intense than in China, where a host of brands offer cutting-edge devices to consumers at reasonable prices.

Despite this competition, and the fact that its pricing is (in my opinion!) anything but reasonable, Apple’s iPhone X model has recorded strong sales in China for the last quarter.

That’s according to specialist publication Computer Weekly, who report that the model was the best selling smartphone in the country over the period, with growth of just under ten percent.

Things might not stay that way for long, though, with new models from other manufacturers on the way.

In particular, as we reported earlier today, OnePlus is revealing its 6 model in London on May 16th.

1,000 tickets were made available for members of the public to attend the event, for the price of £30 each.

In return, as well as being the first consumers to see the OnePlus 6, attendees will be given gift hampers and a voucher to spend on products.

Chinese and international launches will follow the British release on May 17th.

The fact that the 6 will launch in the British capital city has been well received by European tech fans, and also clearly marks the global ambitions of the pioneering Chinese firm.

Experts are predicting that the new OnePlus will feature a 6.2 inch display, the largest ever offered by the company.

It should also pack a punch with a latest generation processor and improved camera system.
