Samsung Surpasses Apple – Becomes the Biggest Smartphone Maker
Samsung, a South Korean company, has reclaimed first place in global smartphone sales. In the month of February 2021, the company recorded massive sales.
Apple was the market leader in the fourth quarter of 2020 following the release of the Apple iPhone 12. Customers have responded positively to Apple’s release of the iPhone 12.
Biggest Smartphone Maker
In the month of February 2021, Samsung experienced a massive increase in sales and rose to the top of the global rankings. According to the company, it has sold 24 million smartphones worldwide. The company now has a global market share of 23.1 percent. Apple, on the other hand, has sold 23 million iPhones worldwide and has a global market share of 22.2 percent.
This is a small margin. When it comes to flagship model variants, Samsung outperforms Apple. However, with only a few variants and such a large market share, Apple is far ahead.
Xiaomi comes in third place on the list of smartphone manufacturing leaders. The company has an 11.5 percent global market share. Vivo and OPPO are two other companies. These companies hold 10.6 and 8.5 percent of the market, respectively. Because of past restrictions and rivalry between China and the US, these smartphones have almost no presence in the US.
The release of the Galaxy S21 in January boosted Samsung sales. Prior to this phase, Apple had a market share of 25.4 percent the previous year. Huawei, a Chinese company, was one of Samsung’s most difficult competitors. Because of the US sanctions, Huawei has lost its presence in the US market.
