Chinese company Huawei from June 2017 for the first time surpassed the American company Apple in the number of mobile phones sold in the world, according to a study by Counterpoint at the end of July this year.
According to him, Huawei has greatly surpassed Apple in global smartphone sales in June. The share of Huawei in July amounted to about 11.6 percent, Apple is about 11,18%, and sales leader Samsung is about 20,36%.
According to Director of Counterpoint research, Peter Richardson, despite the fact that Apple will probably be able to regain lost ground after the release of new smartphones, the second place is very important for the Chinese brand.
“This is an important milestone for Huawei, China’s largest smartphone brand with a growing global presence. This suggests that the growth in the consumer market mobile phones this is primarily a vendor,” said Richardson.
However, according to him, the small presence of Huawei in the markets of South Asia, India, and North America limits its potential in the medium term to occupy the second place after Samsung.
“Huawei remains too dependent on its domestic market in China, where it holds leading positions and markets, targeted at operators in Europe, Latin America and the middle East,” – said the expert.
Experts Counterpoint also noted that despite a high General popularity of Huawei products in the top ten of the world’s most popular smartphone there is no phone from this manufacturer.
