TrendForce reported the smart phone shipments are expected to reach 322 million in the third quarter of 2014, up 13% on quarter, and see flat shipment growth on year in the fourth quarter, while overall shipments in 2014 will reach 1.2 billion, up 29.2% on year.
Though the growth continues, the vendors ranking in this market is fast changing. In China Xiaomi is top supplier and in India Micromax beats Samsung.
