According to Citilink, the network is growing its selection of Chinese goods. Equipment from Schaub Lorenz and Korting is now available in the stores; and in the near future, brands like Kimtigo, Akimojeba, Domfy, and Chuwi will also be available. Consumers are more inclined to pay attention to lesser-known or new brands; and typically they are Chinese, Turkish or Russian companies.

Alexander Surkov, the head of the GS Group analytical center, thinks that popular Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Honor, and Realme will soon overtake the market’s current leaders, Apple and Samsung, and fresh new brands will follow them.

According to the analyst, up to 90% of the Russian smartphone market will really be  Chinese technology businesses; and as a result, their positions will get even stronger as they start to build their own ecosystems; and compete with Apple and Samsung.
