A formidable trio of Chinese phone makers -- Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo -- has collectively claimed 24 percent of the 380 million units of smartphone devices sold across the globe during the first three months of this year, according to the latest report recently released by research firm Gartner. The solid sales numbers of these three mobile manufacturers from China contributed immensely in driving the worldwide smartphone market to grow 9.1 percent.
It appears that all is right in the world again, especially for Samsung. According to the latest quarterly report on smartphone market share recently released by IDC, the South Korean phone maker has snatched back its title as the number one smartphone maker in the world. The company managed to achieve this by capturing a comfortable 22.8 percent.
During the third quarter of 2016, worldwide smartphone sales are starting to come around as the global mobile industry begins to recover from a slump in the first six months of the year. But wait -- that growth appears to be driven not by familiar powerhouse names such as Samsung, Apple, and LG, but by Chinese phone makers like Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo.
Xiaomi is said to be readying to officially unveil its new Mi 5s smartphone some time later this year. This flagship device from the Chinese phone maker is expected to come with lots of new features, which include a pressure sensitive display screen as well as an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Well, there is some new speculation that Xiaomi’s Mi 5s device will also be fitted with dual cameras on its rear side.
Even though Samsung posted a slight decrease in its total volume of smartphone shipments during the first quarter of this year, the South Korean mobile giant remains the number one seller of smartphone devices around the world, according to research firm IDC.
