The arrival of the end of the first quarter is always welcomed with expectation by analysts, the manufacturers themselves and the public. These figures leave no doubt because they are really vertigo. Apple has been ousted from second place in favor of Huawei, which has grown dramatically, by 50 percent. Samsung is headed in spite of falling 8 percent and Apple does so by 30 percent, according to an analytics firm.
The telephone industry is a bit saturated, and innovation is increasingly complex. While some firms seem to have reached the ceiling, Huawei continues to gain ground in an increasingly complex industry, and where prices and developments have to play a good role in achieving good sales.
The figures and the reasons for this overtaking
In total, a total of 310.8 million smartphones were sold worldwide during this first quarter of the year. Huawei had managed to sell 59.1 million, while Samsung and Apple sold 71.9 million and 36.4 million respectively. The South Koreans are still in the lead despite everything, but the Chinese are hitting very hard. You just have to see the number of phones that have managed to introduce in Spain.
One of the reasons why Huawei has emerged as a very attractive manufacturer is to get a good quality in the same device with a price somewhat lower than its competitors. In addition, in China, they have opened many physical stores, which have managed to reach a broad and rural market. On the other hand, Apple has stagnated and fallen in terms of phone sales but has managed to gain ground in accessories and other products.
