 HUAWEI OVERTAKES SAMSUNG AS TOP SMARTPHONE SELLER: REPORT
A technology research firm says Huawei has overtaken Samsung to become the world’s biggest smartphone seller, as its home market in China emerged from the coronavirus pandemic better off than other economies.

Analysts at Canalys said that Huawei shipped 55.8 million devices in the second quarter of 2020.

While the figure was down 5% compared with a year ago, it was a smaller decline than rival Samsung, which saw smartphone sales slide 30% to 53.7 million.

Huawei still faces U.S. government sanctions restricting its international business, but it has come to dominate its domestic Chinese market, said Canalys, which estimated that the company’s shipments in China rose 8% in the April-June period. Mainland China now accounts for 70% of Huawei’s total smartphone sales, it said.
