Counterpoint Research released smartphone sales report for Q2 2019 in Central
Who is in the lead
It seems that the US sanctions “fell back on” Huawei and overseas: in Europe, all this led to a decrease in sales of the Chinese manufacturer. But Samsung and Xiaomi benefited from this and managed to increase sales.
So, in the first place Samsung, which has 40%market. And the lion's share (70%) of sales was taken by the A-series smartphones. “Samsung became the main beneficiary of the drop in Huawei (and Honor) volumes, as it could offer a comparable range of smartphones and fill in the gaps in the portfolio with the help of its latest updates within the A-series,” - say analysts at Counterpoint Research.
The most successful was the Samsung Galaxy A50.
In second place is Huawei, whose share is half that amount - 20%. This is minus 6% compared to the first quarter of this year.
Xiaomi is in third place with a share of 11% (in the first quarter it was 7%), followed by Apple with unchanged 6% and Nokia (2%).
In general, the total share of all Chinese manufacturers grew by 11% year on year.
