Smartphones will make up almost half of all phones sold in Thailand this year, thanks to more affordable prices due to intense competition. 

Sunthat Laicharoen, senior analyst for telecom at GfK Retail and Technology (Thailand), a global leading research firm, said smartphone sales in Thailand are tipped to grow by 110% this year to 7.5 million units of the total 16 million.

Smartphone sales grew by 115% in 2012, accounting for a 35% share in the total phone market.
