I suppose that the Chinese consumers are increasingly migrating to a more high-end smartphone, while India will be the next hot spot for the makers, especially for the Chinese ones due to the price question.
Moreover the day the African continent enjoys better social conditions, thus possessing a good infrastructure in general and specifically concerning telecommunications, we can have another thriving consumer market where smartphone can be marketed.
