According to the source, referring to the data analysts Counterpoint Research, in August the company Samsung took first place in the smartphone market. The share of the Korean giant increased to 22%, while the share of Huawei decreased to 16%.
The difference of 6 percentage points is the largest since February of the current year, when Huawei began to break forward and as a result was even for some time the market leader.
Strengthening the position of Samsung is also due to increased sales of smartphones in India, where Huawei is almost absent.
As for the other companies, Apple takes third place with a share of 12%, but in her back breathes Xiaomi, which took 11%. One would assume that Xiaomi will soon be able to bypass Apple, but if this happens, it will only be for one month – in September – as after the release of the new iPhone, and Apple sales will increase significantly.
