The 6 trends of the Chinese mobile industry in 2013!


The Chinese mobile industry has practically exploded in the last year, an incredible boom! In this post we want to collect and describe the 6 main trends that have characterized the scene in the last 12 months.

Quad-core processors

We can not start without first mentioning the appearance of the Mediatek quad-core chipsets: the MT6589 first, with its clock to 1,2Ghz, and the MT6589T from 1,5Ghz, have subsequently allowed the companies producing high performance, support for 2GB of RAM and improved specifications such as 13 mega-pixel sensor cameras and 1920 × 1080 Full-HD resolution displays.

Thanks to the characteristics of the quad-core processors, the Chinese manufacturing companies have succeeded in guaranteeing the first true Full-HD displays. The first smartphones were fitted with 5 inch Full-HD panels, but over time, however, the size has gradually increased.

Wide Display

Oppo pioneered the 5 inches with the launch of its Oppo Find 5 at the end of 2012. Since then the 5 inches have become a real practice, with increasing popularity even among the Big Size.

Now it is quite common for Chinese devices to measure 5, 5.5, 5.7 or even 6 inches.


FAEA was one of the first Chinese companies to offer low-cost smartphones with NFC technology. The entry-level FAEA F1 Penguin and the flagship FAEA F2 have been forerunners, but today the offer is much wider.

The NFC system on smartphones allows payment of services. the synchronization of devices, the transfer of data, the interaction with advertising and codes (eg QR code), the rapid setting of peripherals such as external optics, speakers, etc.

Low-cost devices with high specifications

Xiaomi Hongmi
While the Full-HD 5 inches have become the trend to follow for flagship devices, prices for devices with smaller displays, with 1GB of RAM and quad-core processor have definitely fallen. Telephones like Xiaomi Hongmi or JiaYu G2F have become very popular thanks to the offer of a high level of hardware at a very low price.

Leader in the hardware & innovation sector

Not all devices are powered Mediatek! Chinese companies are keen to gain notoriety and international reputation and for this they have worked hard to broaden their horizons on performance and innovation.

Live Xplay 3S
The Oppo N1 with rotating camera back touch panel, the ZTE powered with Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, the Xiaomi MI3 with Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and the Vivo Xplay 3S with 2K 2560 1440 4 and support XNUMXG LTE are concrete examples and tangible.

What will the Chinese mobile industry for 2014 have in store?

We are already seeing something, 8-core processors, 4G connectivity ... We can certainly expect new news on the photographic sector, in design, on display resolution and on the openness of many companies to open source.

The 2013 which is slowly coming to an end has undoubtedly been a prolific year. What do we expect for the 2014?
