Apple, which had released its quarterly earnings numbers on Tuesday, suggests that the iPhone X delivered a 14% year-on-year iPhone revenue increase-completely proving wrong all the analysts who had claimed the iPhone X sales were weak all along, because of the high price tag. "Looking forward, more affordable premium devices might be the solution the market needs in the second half of the year to drive shipments back in a positive direction".

Shenzhen-based Chinese telecom giant Huawei's global market share ranked third in Q1 after Samsung and Apple, followed by China's Xiaomi and OPPO, the report showed. "This is made all the more impressive given that growth has come predominantly from just two markets, Spain and Italy".

The Smartphone maker Xiaomi will begin selling its smartphones in the United Kingdom under a partnership with Hutchinson's Three as "China's Apple" turns its attention to the west. The company continued its retail expansion in India and Southeast Asia, with online channels remain the key contributor in India, its second largest market.

If you have the Samsung Galaxy S8 for example, you might not want to upgrade to the S9. Samsung's share dropped slightly from 22.7% to 22.6%.

"Android share falls from 59.8% in 2017 to 57.7% in the latest 3 months".

Samsung maintained the number spot with 78.2m shipments and a 23.4 per cent market share but suffered a 2.4 per cent decline in units shipped. It continues to grow in the India smartphone market along with increasing efforts to enter new markets and capture more market share in Q2 2018.
