So, if you are a global smartphone buyer, like distributor or wholesaler, you won’t miss this buying guide that focus on how to select your best fit OEM mobile phones by features and specifications for targeted markets, countries or regions. As the mobile phone manufacturing technique developed, many smartphones have impressive features, like metal frame for adding points in phone’s design and appearance, fingerprint for improving mobile phones’ security. So this buyer’s guide not only tells you how to choose OEM mobile phones by features or specifications, but we also list some excellent smartphones with these features for recommendations.

Select OEM mobile phones by basic features and specifications

CPU, Screen and Camera are the mainly three important features for selecting OEM mobile phones. But besides the primal three components, there are some features you need to consider when you select OEM mobile phones for your brands, like phone networks and size, etc.

CPU determines the phone processor’s running speed and fluency of a mobile phone and might be the most primary feature that global buyers are concerned about for selecting mobile phone. Mentioning of CPU, most global buyers will talk about the number of cores that CPU uses. Quad core processors and Octa core processors are the most used kinds for OEM smartphones currently. However, as the CPU technique developing, the smartphones using deca-core will dominate the high-end smartphone market in the near future.

Screen matters a lot for phone wholesalers or distributers when they select mobile phones, the screen resolution is qHD, HD or Full HD; the screen technique uses IPS technology, or full lamination, or Glass+Film+Film structure.

Camera is an important feature for selecting OEM mobile phones as well. The better camera sensor an OEM smartphone uses, the higher price the phone sells. However, more and more well-known camera sensors are used in the high-mid-range OEM smartphones now, such as Sony and Samsung.

Size is another prime feature for you to consider when selecting mobile phones. In old times when iPhone 4s released, the most typical smartphone size is 4.7 inch, but now more and more mobile phones in 5 inch or 5.5 inch are the mainstream trend, and the word “phablet” appears, for naming bigger smartphones of 6 inch or 7 inch sizes. And now iPhone has upgraded to 5.5 inch as mobile phone manufacturers do.

Networks is the basic feature for consideration when you choose an OEM mobile phone for your brands or companies for targeted markets, for example, some countries or regions haven’t been covered with 4G networks yet, if you aim at these regions, mobile phones that support 3G networks might be your first choice. But for developed regions like Europe and America, most countries have 4G networks covered, and for these countries, 4G mobile phones are preferred. And different regions have different common network frequencies, for instance, Europe has band 7/1/3/8/20 (2600/2100/1800/900/800 MHz) of 4G FDD-LTE networks and America has band b7/2/3/4/17 (2600/1900/1800/1700/700 MHz) of 4G FDD-LTE networks.

Dual SIM card slots become the general feature of most smartphones, as dual SIM mobile phones are more convenient, especially for business people who want to separate contacts for work and personal life.

Select mobile phones with advanced features and specifications

Besides the basic features and specifications for selecting mobile phones, there are more and more advanced features or specifications that global buyers will take into consideration, like metal frame, fingerprint and double-sided glass, etc.

Metal frame becomes a popular feature that many global buyers would consider when selecting OEM mobile phones. Phones featuring metal frame look elegant and artistic, especially when holding them in hand.

Fingerprint also becomes a prime feature for a large number of OEM mobile phones, as more and more customers are aware of the importance of mobile phone’s security and privacy, so phone wholesalers would like to import smartphones with fingerprint function to meet the needs.

Double-sided glass is also a good feature or selling point for latest smartphones now, especially the Gorilla Glass, which is now the iconic feature in the mobile phone industry to judge a smartphone good or not.
