In 2019, shipments of smartphones had declined 4% from the previous year, according to CAICT data. Handset vendors had entered 2020 hoping the year would bring renewed sales as consumers purchased new phones compatible with China’s rapidly-expanding 5G networks. Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi have ramped up production in hopes of capturing that share. Phone makers shipped a total of 25.2 million smartphones to consumers in China in the month of December, marking a 12.8% year-on-year decline, according to CAICT.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterSHANGHAI (Reuters) - The head of the Tibetan government in exile has visited the U.S. White House for the first time in six decades, a move that could further infuriate Beijing, which has accused the United States of trying to destabilise the region. Lobsan Sangay, President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), was invited to the White House to meet the newly appointed U.S. Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, Robert Destro, on Friday, the CTA said in a press release. Tibet has become one of the areas of dispute between the United States and China, with relations between the world’s two biggest economies at their lowest point in decades. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Beijing in July of violating Tibetan human rights and said Washington supported “meaningful autonomy” for the region. Beijing officials have since accused the United States of using Tibet to try to promote “splittism” in China.
