Chinese smartphone brand realme has claimed the top spot in the Philippine smartphone market after posting an impressive annual growth of 962.5% and capturing 25.4% of local market share in the third quarter.
The device introduces the 5G network DNA to the Reno series, and is the brand’s first mid-premium offering that is 5G-capable in the country.
The new ColorOS skin revolves around giving its users a wider range of control, especially in the area of personalization. With the built-in UI customization platform, users can now select their own designs for the Always-On display feature for Amoled smartphones, themes and wallpaper, and even fonts and icons.
One striking feature of the Reno4 is its rear cameras, as the sensors are evidently larger compared to Oppo’s previous releases.
Available on any Oppo concept store and partner retailers, the Oppo A92 will retail for P15,990 and comes in two colorways – Twilight Black and Shining White.
The extended terms and service warranty cover provisions on repair services and device and accessories replacement policies.
Oppo and Vivo held the top two spots with 27% and 25% shares, respectively. Tech powerhouse Samsung was number 3 with a 9% share during Q4 but its shipments plunged by 32% — the only company to experience to a negative growth.
Samsung managed to maintain the top spot for the full year 2019. Despite Huawei’s ongoing challenges outside of China and a notable drop in 4Q19 shipments, it did manage to overtake Apple for the number 2 position overall in 2019.
