Canalys: Huawei Beats Samsung as Top Handset Seller For Q2

Not even the pandemic affected Huawei's sales

Despite the COVID-19 and its ongoing tensions against the US, Huawei emerged as the top handset seller globally for the second quarter of 2020, overtaking Samsung.

According to a report by Canalys, Huawei shipped 55.8 million devices, while Samsung shipped 53.7 million. While Huawei experienced a 5% drop from the same quarter last year, Samsung fared worse, dropping by 30% compared to the same period last year.

Huawei’s dominance is evident with the Chinese market, where the country is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chinese market accounts for 70% of Huawei’s total sales. Compared to the same period last year, Huawei boosted its sales in China by 8%.

“Amidst a period of unprecedented global economic slowdown and challenges, we’re continued to grow and further our leadership position,” a Huawei spokesperson said.
