By Kim Young-gyo
HONG KONG, Sept. 8 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co., the world's No. 2 mobile phone maker, said Wednesday it has launched the Galaxy S smartphone in China, with the aim of taking the top spot in the country's mobile phone market.

Samsung Electronics hopes its Android-powered Galaxy S model will help it overtake its bigger rival Nokia Corp. in the world's most populous country.
The South Korean electronics maker currently holds a 25 percent market share of the Chinese handset market, coming in second to Nokia, which has been dominating the market with a 40 percent share.
