Samsung has once again won the title of the world’s number one smartphone company, which was snatched by Huawei during the last quarter.
According to IDC, Counterpoint and Canals, Samsung regained its status as the number one company in the July-September 2020 quarter.
The reports came as Samsung released its highest-ever quarterly earnings figures last week, saying demand for smartphones had risen again.
Earlier, during the April-June quarter, Huawei became the number one company for the first time due to an increase in demand for phones in China during the Corona virus epidemic, while a decline in other countries.
According to Counterpoint, sales of Huawei’s phones fell 7% during July-September, compared to 24% in the same period last year.
In contrast, Samsung’s phone sales rose 47% in the third quarter.
But the most astonishing development has been made by Chinese company Xiaomi, which for the first time in a quarter has become the third largest smartphone company.
The company’s phone sales grew 46 percent in one year.
Earlier in February, it came third behind Huawei, but for the first time in a quarter, it won the award.
But the most shocking is Apple’s decline, which has slipped out of the top three for the first time in years, and its device sales fell 7% between July and September, pushing it to fourth.
The main reason for this is the introduction of new iPhones in October instead of September.
Oppo, Vivo and Real were ranked 5th, 6th and 7th respectively.
In the Counterpoint report, Oppo was ranked 5th, while IDC and Canals ranked Vivo at 5th.
But the three companies agreed that there was not much difference in the phone sales figures of the three companies.
