Huawei Surpassed Apple as the world’s second-largest Smartphone Maker

Huawei has surpassed Apple to become the world’s second largest smartphone maker.

It’s the first time in eight years that the US tech giant has not been the number one or two smartphone company in terms of market share.

According to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC), Huawei delivered shipments of 54.2 million units to move into the second position with a record high market share of 15.8%.

Samsung maintained its lead, although IDC suggests indications from its recent earnings call could see mobile division revenues face challenges moving forward.
