Unbelievable, but a fact: the Chinese company Huawei has overtaken Samsung in smartphone sales for the first time

Huawei managed to sell 35% of all sophisticated smartphones in the world, while Samsung lagged behind by as much as 12%.< /p>

Samsung has led the global folding phone market since it launched the Galaxy Fold in 2019, but in the first quarter of 2024, US-sanctioned Chinese brand Huawei has overtaken the South Korean brand in this field. The details are written by the Android Authority site, citing a study by the analytical company Counterpoint Research. 35% of the global clamshell market, compared to Samsung's 23%, fell on the complex devices of the Chinese brand. Only a year ago, Huawei's share in the world was 14% compared to Samsung's 58%.

Analysts say that Huawei's transition to 5G in sophisticated devices is the reason for its rise to the top of the global market. It's no surprise that the Mate X5 was one of China's best-sellers for three consecutive quarters, and the Huawei Pocket 2 model was the most popular device in the first quarter. The manufacturer has been relying on the domestic market since the introduction of US sanctions in 2019, so experts believe that the vast majority of shipments of Huawei's sophisticated devices come from China.

Honor and Motorola also showed huge annual growth, while Counterpoint referred to foreign deliveries of each brand. In fact, the two brands ranked third and fourth, respectively.

Analysts also noted that for the first time since 2021, notebook-type smartphones will account for the majority of global shipments of foldable phones — 55% With Honor and Xiaomi's Flip and Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 6 due later this year, flip-style smartphones will account for the majority of flip-flop sales by the end of 2024.
