This information, known to us for some time now, has just been confirmed by a research done by a company called Garter. Effects of their research are available on the diagram above. It shows basically the same thing that IDC’s research had in the beginning of this month: namely, that Huawei has sold more smartphones in Q2 2018 than Apple have. Samsung still is the leading manufacturer on the market, even if it sold ten million smartphones less than in Q2 2017. Xiaomi and Oppo have bigger share of the market, too – could it be that Chinese producers are rising?
