Similarly, earlier this month, Chinese smarphone manufacturer Xiaomi announced that it sold more than 70 million handheld devices in 2015. The figure fell a little short of its own sales goal of 80 million.

According to Canalys, Huawei overtook Xiaomi to grab the top seller spot for the region in Q3. Huawei announced that it saw an 81 percent surge in sales, year-on-year.

Oppo devices are based around its own skinned version of Android Lollipop, called ColorOS. Last year, Oppo released a range of new models such as the metal-cased R7 series (which the company claimed accounted for around 15 million of its 2015 sales), the Neo 7, and the quirky looking Mirror 5.

The company is reported to be targeting Indian market this year, aiming for an increase sales of 300 per cent.
