New Delhi: In 2014, China will remain the largest smartphone market in the world in terms of sales. New statistics show that China will have more smartphone sales in 2014 than there are people living in the United States. The study estimates the figure to be around 400 million smartphones in 2014 alone.

The data also shows that phone users in China and India will buy over 500 million smartphones in 2014, comprising half of the total that will be sold in 47 key countries. It also notes that this will put India ahead of the US and it will become the second-largest country for smartphone use in the world.
