In the recent report from IHS Markit, overall smartphone shipments for Q2 2019 have declined 3.6% to 331.2 Million as compared to the same period last year.
Based on the report, OPPO has dislodged Apple at the No. 3 spot as the Chinese smartphone maker shipped 36.2 Million phones while Apple which now occupies No. 4 spot shipped 35.3 Million units. Samsung and Huawei had an increase of smartphone shipments for the mentioned period. Both companies occupied No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.
According to the report, the recent US ban on Huawei has no effect on its sales and shipments. Huawei’s market share increased to 18% which is 2% higher than the same period last year.
Apple has been losing market share since last year probably due to its very sky high prices forcing people to shift to Android which offers more features with better pricing.
