The iPhone has seen considerable growth in China for the past few years. According to a new report from Counterpoint Research, it has actually been the top selling smartphone in the People’s Republic of China since 2012 but the latest data shows that Apple’s smartphone as now lost its top spot. The report mentions that the iPhone has been replaced as the country’s top selling smartphone by a local challenger.
Chinese manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the lucrative opportunities that the U.S. market offers them as they seek to expand globally.

Oppo is one of the sponsors of FC Barcelona, the all conquering football side in the Spanish La Liga, although they did miss out on Champions League glory this year after falling away to one of their La Liga challengers, Atletico Madrid.
