Data International Data Corporation (IDC) said Huawei had shipped 310.8 million units of smartphones globally in the first three months of 2019. Although fairly large, the number dropped 6.6 percent from the same period last year.

Meanwhile, for Apple, the first quarter of 2019 was a challenging period. The iPhone has shipped 30.2 percent of last year’s 36.4 million units.

According to IDC Research Manager, Anthony Scarsella, the latest iPhone is more expensive but offers only a few updates.

“In addition, the delay of 5G handsets might make consumers wait until the network and devices are available in 2020,” he said.
