Apple no longer the 2nd biggest Phone maker in the World
In their monthly report, market research firm Counterpoint says that Huawei has surpassed Apple to become the second largest Smartphone company in the World. This talks about the Smartphone market share in terms of the number of total units sold.
Huawei consistently achieved this feat for June and July, and there’s a good chance that this will continue in August too. The first spot was retained by Samsung, which I fathom is due to the wide product portfolio they sport.

Another interesting stat is that there is not a single Huawei/Honor device in the top smartphones sold Worldwide. This shows how having multiple Stock keeping units has helped them have offerings for a lot of customers potentially. However, they need to work on their Global brand image, if they wish to keep growing; something that very few Chinese companies have been able to do…..
