Samsung leads global smartphone market, Huawei pips Apple

Huawei snatches the #2 spot from Apple in the global smartphone market

While the total smartphone market declined 1.8% in the second quarter of 2018, Huawei's market share increased to 15.8%, reflected in 54.2 million smartphone shipments in the quarter and a whopping 41% jump over past year.

Chinese firm Huawei has overtaken Apple to become the world's second largest smartphone maker by market share, new figures reveal. Next was the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus with 12%, then the OnePlus 5T with 10% of the market.

Huawei's result is a 40.9 percent year on year improvement and is an excellent result in a very competitive and yet sluggish market with the year on year change for the overall market down 1.8 percent. Still, OnePlus, Samsung and Apple have a controlling 88% share of the premium segment. The report reveals that a total of 342 million smartphones were shipped in the second quarter of this year, which represents a 1.8% decline as compared to the same quarter YoY.

Huawei has nearly no market share in the USA, due to government accusations that it is tied to the Chinese government.

The same day Apple reported its best June quarter ever - and its fourth straight quarter of double-digit revenue growth - researchers published new data that shows the iPhone maker has fallen to the number three spot in terms of global smartphone shipments.

Yes, he was dropped twice but that does not take away from the fact Edgbaston got to witness a master at work. Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan looked at ease as they got to 50 without breaking much of a sweat.

The top three brands - Samsung, OnePlus and Apple - accounted for 88 percent of the overall premium market as compared to 95 percent a quarter ago.

He explains that Huawei's P20 Pro is the first flagship smartphone model to be equipped with triple cameras, beating competitors to market. It shipped 41.3 million iPhones, a growth of 0.7% over the figure shipped previous year. Samsung was pushed to the second spot with 35% share and Apple has, for the first time, reached the third slot in India with a record low of less than 14%.

Approximately 351m smartphones were sold globally in the second quarter, down 2% year-on-year due to market saturation, increasing prices, longer replacement rates, reduced mobile phone network subsidies and lack of feature and design innovation, according to data aggregated by the Guardian.

Apple shipments were static at 41.3 million despite the fact the firm is selling nine models rather than the six it did this time past year. "In addition to this, models such as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are also losing steam", said Stanton, adding that an uptick in iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, helped in part by the Product Red campaign, was enough to offset this trend.

No matter what, that means that growth is between 41% and 44%m giving Huawei a 15.7% share of the market. The company faced a slowdown in important markets like India and most of Southeast Asia.
