Xiaomi has become 2nd largest smartphone company around the globe.
When it comes to smartphone sales, Samsung is the company that has been at the forefront in this regard for a long time.
Huawei was a threat to Samsung’s lead and once again became the world’s number one company in the second quarter of 2020, but the effects of US sanctions pushed it out of the top five companies selling smartphones.
But now another Chinese company has emerged as a threat to the superiority of Samsung and Apple, and that is Xiaomi.
Samsung was the world’s leading smartphone seller in the second quarter of 2021, according to a report by Canalys, a company that analyzes smartphone sales.
However, a Chinese company has significantly reduced its lead and has become the second largest seller of smartphones in the world for the first time.
Between April and June 2021, Samsung’s global smartphone market share grew by 19% and device sales increased by 15% over the same period last year.
Sales of the Galaxy S21 series of phones were better than those of the Galaxy S20 series, while Samsung also introduced a number of midrange phones of the Galaxy A and Galaxy M series, which boosted the company’s business.
