China largest contributor to global 5G sales in Q2

BEIJING (Xinhua) – China was the largest contributor to global 5G sales in the second quarter of 2020, with 72 per cent of global 5G handset revenues coming from China, per a report from market research firm Counterpoint.

Most of this was driven by a push from Huawei, according to the report.

The average smartphone sale price in China increased 12 per cent year-on-year and the country contributed over 34 per cent of global smartphone revenues in the second quarter.

The report said that was because all other major economies were still suffering from the severe impact of COVID-19, and China was already on the path to recovery.
