Asus Was Japan’s Top Supplier of SIM-Free Smartphones in 2015

Last year Asus arrived on the market with some amazing smartphone devices like the ZenFone 2, one of the first mobile phones on the market with 4 GB of RAM memory. In the next couple of months we had some other variants as well, like the ZenFone 2 Laser, Deluxe Special Edition, or the Asus ZenFone MAX. As it seems, Asus phones were pretty popular in Japan in 2015.


According to a report released by Economic Daily News, ASUS was Japan’s top supplier of SIM-free smartphones last year. On the 2nd place we have Huawei with a 23.8% share, while LG with a 15.9% share occupied the 3rd position in this top.

Some data from MM Research Institute are revealing the fact that SIM-free smartphones sales in Japan will grow up to 37% on year, up to 1.85 million units in 2016, and to 3.81 million in 2018. As Mobile World Congress 2016 is just around the corner, we expect to see some new devices from Asus as well.
