02-24-2016 16:48 BJT

Smartphones will be used for 50 percent of all mobile connections worldwide by the end of 2016. That's according to a prediction made by GSMA Intelligence. GSMA says China is expected to continue playing a major role in increasing the number of smartphone connections.

The agency said Monday that although growth in smartphone use in China has slowed since 2015, sales remain strong as users look to upgrade to high-end devices. India will also see an important rise, with an adoption rate climbing from 23 percent now to an estimated 50 percent by 2020. It's estimated that some 2.9 billion smartphone connections have been added over the past five years and a further 2.5 billion are predicted for the next five years.
