Huawei becomes the second-largest smartphone vendor based on recent reports by analyst firms such as Strategy Analytics, Canalys, and Counterpoint Research.
In the year 2019, Huawei shipped 240 million phones beating tech giant Apple.
Samsung kept its lead like previous years shipping almost 300 million devices while Apple manages to bring in business shipping 200 million phones maintaining its spot as the third-largest smartphone vendor.
Chinese brands, Xiaomi and Oppo stood at the fourth and fifth places. Xiaomi shipped 125 million phones while Oppo shipped 120 million respectively.
It is worth mentioning here that Huawei as a brand comprises an affordable sub-brand called Honor that helps boosts the sales of the brand notably, hence the results.
Over 60% of customers of the brand come from China. The high rate of shipment of the phones in the region is expected as they provide direct access to Google Play Services on new devices.
Chinese masterminds must be applauded for choosing far more global appeal as the world watches them expand much further beyond their traditional borders.
However, the newest deadly coronavirus will affect the sales of the brand greatly in the region.
