The executive vice president added that ZTE would spend about three years in improving brand image to narrow the gap with companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Samsung Electronics.

The company saw fastest growth in mobile phone sales in US market in 2012 and the operating revenue from this market would hit USD 1 billion in 2012, of which about 90% would be contributed by mobile devices, forming a big contrast with the fact that the company merely saw about USD 400 million in operating revenue in US market in 2011.
