China produces over 1.2 bn mobile phones from January – August

China produced over 1.26 billion mobile phones in the first eight months of the year, including 932 million smart phones, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

The figures were announced at a summit on mobile innovation Thursday by Qiao Yueshan, with the ministry.

According to the ministry, China produced about 1.3 billion mobile phones during the same period in 2016.

Qiao said that China was among the world’s leading producers of smart phones, with increasing international clout in the field.

“However, our smart terminal industry still faces challenges, such as the homogeniaation of designs.

“Manufacturers of smart terminals should focus on research on core technology and seize opportunities in artificial intelligence, as well as prepare for the 5G network era,” Qiao said.
