Here’s a list of the world’s largest smartphone brands and their market shares.
This year, the smartphone industry is starting to squirm. Based on Canalys data, in the third quarter of this year (July to September 2019), the number of smartphone shipments globally was recorded at 352.4 million units.
This figure increased by 1 percent compared to the same period last year, with shipments of 348.9 million units.
5 of the world’s largest smartphone brands (Q3 2019):
Quoting GSMArena, Samsung accounts for the largest portion of the overall smartphone shipment.
The South Korean manufacturer tops the list with global smartphone shipments reaching 78.9 million units with a market share of 22.4 percent.
This figure increased by 11 percent when compared with the same period last year, i.e the shipment rate of 71.3 million units and 20.4 percent market share.
Moving away from Samsung, Huawei is the second-largest global smartphone brand to ship with 66.8 million units and a 19 percent market share.
Although plagued by various issues, such as blocking by the US, the Chinese manufacturer actually recorded a growth of 29 percent compared to the same period the previous year.
Apple, Xiaomi, and OPPO
The total shipment of the three smartphone vendors was recorded at 43.5 million, 32.5 million, and 32 million units.
Of the five vendors above, Canalys noted Apple as the company with the biggest decline in smartphone shipments.
According to Canalys researchers, this is caused by innovations on the iPhone that are not so significant, such as the absence of models that have adopted 5G.
