Analysts have underestimated Xiaomi sales of smartphones

As we wrote earlier, recently IDC analysts calculated how many smartphones manufacturers sold in the first

quarter 2019. However, Xiaomi was dissatisfied with these numbers.

How many?

The IDC report states that Xiaomi managed to sell 25 million smartphones in the quarter. And this is 10% less than in the same period last year.

However, Xiaomi representatives claim that in factIn fact, the figures are higher—27.5 million devices. This is stated in the company’s official statement to the media and investors. For the latter, by the way, these numbers are important, so a decrease in sales could undermine their confidence and leave Xiaomi without investment.

IDC analysts responded promptlyto criticism, made repeated calculations and admitted their mistake. Indeed, the number of Xiaomi smartphones sold is not 25, but 27.5 million. The agency promises to publish the corrected report next week.

Let us remind you that according to the results of the quarter, Samsung is still in first place, but Huawei is hot on its heels: the Chinese company managed to increase its shipments by an incredible 50.3%.
