Huawei overtakes Samsung as world's No. 1 smartphone seller

huawei 3Huawei has overtaken Samsung to become the No. 1 smartphone seller worldwide in the second quarter, underscoring the resilience of the China market even as global demand for phones plunged amid the pandemic.

Industry tracker Canalys said Thursday the embattled firm, which is facing US sanctions, shipped 55.8 million devices the April-June period — overtaking Samsung for the first time, which shifted 53.7 million units.

The findings marked the first quarter in nine years that a company other than Samsung or Apple has led the market, Canalys said.

More than 70% of Huawei smartphones are now sold in the country, Canalys said, where Samsung has a very small share of the market.

China took an early hit from the coronavirus pandemic but has since reclaimed ground as new cases have dwindled. Smartphone makers dominant in other countries are still struggling as new virus cases continue to rise.

Huawei’s sales fell 5 percent from the same quarter a year earlier, while South Korea’s Samsung posted a 30 percent drop due to weak demand in key markets including Brazil, the United States and Europe.

Overseas shipments, however, fell nearly a third in the second quarter and Canalys analyst Mo Jia warned that strength in China alone “will not be enough to sustain Huawei at the top once the global economy starts to recover.”

Samsung said it expects smartphone demand to pick up in the second half of the year.

华为超越三星攀登畅销榜首

近日,华为终端负责人表示,截止至一季度末,华为5G手机在全球发货量已达1500万台,占全球5G手机总出货量的40%,超越三星攀登畅销榜首。在国内,其5G手机出货量占比甚至高达63%,也就是说国内5G手机一大半都是华为卖出的。这也是自美接二连三打压华为之后第一个好消息,手机的畅销,不仅让其有了“继续斗争”的勇气,其次也给了“休养生息”的时间。

“好事成双”,最近华为公布了上半年的业绩,华为的销售收入同比增长13.1%,总额达4540亿人民币,创下了历史新高。
