SHANGHAI: Shipments of smartphones within China tumbled 30.8per cent year-on-year to 22.6 million handsets in May, the China Academy of Information and Communications (CAICT) reported on Wednesday.

The figures suggest that the handset industry has returned to pre-pandemic levels but nevertheless mark an end to a surge earlier this year.

Shipment numbers are down from 26.97 million in April 2021, according to the CAICT, a state-backed think-tank.
