Lenovo Group aims to challenge Samsung Electronics Co Ltd to become the No 1 smartphone vendor in the Chinese market this year, according to the company's chief executive officer.

"Innovation, strong distribution channels and effective operations have been the key factors that help Lenovo smartphones stand out," said Yang Yuanqing, chairman and chief executive officer, in an interview in Beijing on Friday.

Founded in Beijing's Zhongguancun technology hub in 1984, Lenovo has become a personal computer giant, competing with rivals including Hewlett-Packard Co and Dell Inc, and extending its reach to the smartphone market.

Lenovo was China's second-largest smartphone vendor by shipment in the third quarter last year, behind only Samsung, while Apple Inc fell two places to sixth in the same period, according to reports from the International Data Corporation.

Specific market share figures from local research firm Analysys International showed Lenovo's share rose to 14.2 percent in the third quarter, from 4.8 percent a year ago.

"Lenovo does not want to be the second player ... we want to be the best," Yang told China Daily, adding that he hopes the company will gain the top position in China's smartphone market this year.

"Lenovo has the confidence to outperform Samsung and Apple, at least in the Chinese market," he said.
