Huawei sold 16.5% more handsets in the second quarter
« on: August 28, 2019, 06:03:28 AM »

The global smartphone market continued to languish during the second quarter according to the latest report from Gartner. 367.9 million units were sold to end-users during the three month period from April through June, down 1.7% from the 374.3 million units rung up during the same period last year. The analytical firm's senior research director Anshul Gupta notes that high-end models have experienced a harsher slow down in demand than low and mid-range handsets. To generate upgrades, Gupta says that manufacturers are trying things like bezel-less displays, multi-camera setups in back and front and larger capacity batteries.

Samsung remains King of the smartphone world after selling 75.11 million handsets during the quarter. The company's market share rose year-over-year from 19.3% to 20.4%. Huawei's sell-through of 58.06 million phones gave it a 15.8% slice of the global smartphone pie. The company had hoped to be on top of this list by the fourth quarter, but its placement on the U.S. Entity List makes that a long shot. Huawei is not allowed to access its U.S. supply chain, although U.S. suppliers have a second 90-day window to help the company service its existing customers and update certain smartphone models. Despite the ban, Huawei sold 16.5% more units during the period, compared to the same quarter last year.
Apple iPhone sales declined 13.8% during the quarter on a year-over-year basis

Gartner's data shows Apple selling 38.52 million iPhones during the quarter, down 13.9% from the 44.72 million units it sold during last year's second quarter. The company no longer reveals this data during its quarterly earnings report but does release a breakdown of revenue. For the calendar second quarter (Apple's fiscal third-quarter), iPhone revenue declined 12% and represented less than 50% of the company's total revenue for the first time since 2012. According to Gartner, the iPhone accounted for 10.5% of smartphone sales during the three-month period.
