Huawei is now the second largest smart phone company after Samsung.
According to latest report released by counterpoint’s Market pulse for July 2017, Huawei just surpassed apple to become the second largest smartphone company in the world. This feat was achieved consistently for the month of June and July and even in the month of August sales are looking much stronger for the Chinese firm.
This feat achieve d by Huawei could be temporary considering the fact that Apple would drive in the next set of iphones into the markets but we never can tell or underestimate the power of the Chinese brand.
Monthly Market Pulse for smartphone Sales
Samsung retained the first spot, while apple took the trophy before the best selling models for the month of July. other devices that made the list includes the Galaxy S8, xiaomi Redmi Note 4X and Samsung Galaxy S8+.
According to counterpoint, The growth of the Chinese brand is an intrinsic trend which no player of the smartphone ecosystem could possibly ignore.
while Huawei climbed to the world;s second largest brand overall, its is very surprising to see that none of its models was breaking into the top ten.This is due to multiple SKU portfolio that currently lacks a true hero device.
Whats the hope for Infinix or Tecno?as can see no position is permanent!!! who knows maybe they may turn out to be the largest smart phone brand in the nearest future.
