How China’s Realme sold 50 million phones in just over 2 years

Starting a new phone brand in 2018 might seem too late in an already crowded market, but Sky Li was convinced that consumers between 18-25 years old were largely under-served — they needed something that was both affordable and cool.

More Chinese phones could lose US apps under Trump’s Clean Network

Over a third of the world’s smartphone sales come from Chinese vendors Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo. These manufacturers have thrived not only because they offer value-for-money handsets thanks to China’s supply chains, but they also enjoy a relatively open mobile ecosystem, in which consumers in most countries can freely access the likes of Google, Instagram and WhatsApp. That openness is under attack as the great U.S.-China tech divide inches closer to reality, which can cause harm on both sides.

India says the ban is about preserving "data sovereignty", implying that it wants home-grown champions to replace Chinese apps. But Chinese tech dominates India, not just in software, with cheap Chinese Android phones from brands such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, Vivo, and...
