Huawei has shipped more smartphones worldwide than any other company during the second quarter of 2020, according to analyst firm Canalys. This is the first time Huawei is leading the smartphone shipment market which has seen either Apple or Samsung on top for the past nine years.
In Q2 2020, Huawei shipped 55.8 million devices, which is 5 percent down year-on-year, while Samsung shipped 53.7 million smartphones, which is 30 percent down year-on-year. More than 70 percent of Huawei’s smartphone shipments are in mainland China, which had not been hit hard by the pandemic in the second quarter as other markets. Meanwhile, Samsung’s major markets have had severe consequences of the pandemic.
With holiday season coming, people are likely to upgrade their smartphones that could possibly help improve the whole smartphone market in numbers. Furthermore, new product launches from Samsung will spark the competition for sure.
