China’s top smartphone maker Huawei has reportedly outsold Apple’s iPhones in the first quarter of this year, thereby capturing the Californian company’s second place in the ever tightening smartphone market lead by Samsung,.

A total of 310.8 million smartphones were shipped globally during the first quater of this year but still there was a 6.6 percent decline in the number of smartphones that were shipped during the same period last year.


This also shows that even 2019 will be another bad year for smartphone manufacturers other than strong growth of 50 per cent shown by Huawei.

South Korea’s consumer electronics leader Samsung witnessed a decline of 8.1 percent to 71.9 million in smartphone shipments.

Huawei, on the other hand reported a growth of 50.3 percent and shipped 59.1 million smartphones.
Apple had a depressing first quarter this year as the iPhone shipments fell by 30.2 percent when compared to last year. This quater, Apple was able to ship only 36.4 million units.

Heavy discounts in markets China along with some lucrative exchange or trade-in deals were not enough to lure people to upgrade to newer iPhones.
