How Will Lenovo (LNVGY) Stock Respond As It Eyes Smartphone Growth In Emerging Markets?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Lenovo Group (LNVGY) is looking to become a major player in smartphones, and not just in China but also overseas, as it challenges Samsung (SSNLF) and Apple (AAPL - Get Report), the Wall Street Journal reports.

Already the world's largest PC maker by shipments, Lenovo has made big progress in smartphones, the Journal said.

In the second quarter, it not only became the number one smartphone maker in China, overtaking Samsung, but it was the number four vendor by shipments world-wide, according to research firm IDC.


Analysts predict Lenovo could become an even bigger player after it completes its acquisition of Google's (GOOGL - Get Report) Motorola Mobility handset unit, which it agreed to buy for $2.91 billion earlier this year.

Revenue climbed 18% to $10.4 billion from $8.79 billion a year earlier.

Shares of Lenovo Group are down -0.95% to $29.12.
