Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for Mobile Phone Panels
In August, some China brands are still suffering from inventories of 3G phones because China Mobile adjusted its subsidy policy and became cautious toward procurement. Some brands are even having inventory issues with 4G phones. Brands started more aggressively promoting high-cost, performance 4G models like the $163 RedMi Note and $130 Huawei Honor 3C. Increasing competition has pressured smartphone ASPs to decline in the open market, especially for the popular 5'' models.
