Thanks to Increased Sales, Huawei Might Take Over Apple in Smartphone Sales in Coming Months

Huawei in recent years have established itself as one of the major smartphone manufacturer thanks to the company’s offerings for different consumers. Despite its solid history of smartphone sales, the company is yet to take over Apple to become the second largest smartphone manufacturer of smartphones. However, a recent report from a research firm, Canalys and Strategy Analytics has pointed out that Huawei might take over Apple to become the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the coming months largely thanks to the increased sales figure the company experienced in the second quarter of this year.

This latest prediction comes as Apple recently reported a solid 7 percent increase in year-over-year revenue from smartphone sales as the company shipped more than 41 million units of iPhones during the time. However, Huawei has closed the gap between the two companies as currently Huawei is just 3 million units behind Apple in terms of smartphone sales during the second quarter of 2017 as the company saw a 2 percent increase in sales compared to same time period last year.

Unsurprisingly, Samsung is currently leading the market in terms of smartphone sales as the company shipped nearly 80 million units in the quarter. Understandably, Samsung’s latest sales have been boosted by its Galaxy S8 and S8+ performance in the market. However, these figures aren’t highly reliable as we eagerly wait Apple’s much anticipated iPhone 8 release in the coming months. As iPhone’s sales figures are likely to increase in the coming months following iPhone 8 release, we will have to wait and see if Huawei manages to attract more consumers to solidify its position in the smartphone market.
