Second-quarter shipment results of Chinese smartphones market clearly shows Huawei’s dominance and a new report says its performance in the global smartphone market for Q2 has also increased tremendously.
According to IDC, Huawei grew its global smartphone shipments by 8.3% year on year shipment with 58.7 million during Q219 from 54.2 million in Q218. The company acquired a 17.6% global smartphone market share in Q2 2019, up from 15.9% last year.
Currently, Huawei’s shipment volumes decline by 0.6% with 58.7 million shipments in Q2 compared to 59.1 million in Q1 and 17.6% total market share Q2 compared to 19% shares in the Q1.
