Leading the pack, as usual, is Samsung, with 20.9 percent of the global market and shipments of 71.5 million handsets in the last quarter.

Huawei overtook Apple to become the world's second-largest smartphone seller behind Samsung in the second quarter, the first time in seven years that any contender has managed to split the top two.

Likewise, another research firm Canalys, in its latest market report on smartphones for Q2 2018 published on 31 July, also ranked Hauwei at number two with 54 million shipments, ahead of Apple which shipped 41 million smartphones during the same quarter.

The mobile market is tough to crack.

Samsung remains as the leader with Apple placing itself in the third place.

It will be worth watching whether D.C. federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson is receptive to this request. "Paul J. At another point, he asserted: "All of these charges boil down to one simple issue: that Paul Manafort lied".

Do you think Huawei will be able to surpass Apple next year in terms of the total shipments tally next year? Its not just Samsung though, most companies relied on discounts and deals.

Global smartphone shipments declined by 2% annually in Q2 2018, as users in markets such as China, the U.S. and western Europe are upgrading to newer phones less frequently. But for an Apple flagship, this is normal. Huawei failed in its recent bid to launch in the U.S. after government action against companies deemed a security threat. Samsung claims the slowdown is due to both intensified competition at the high end and an overall sluggish smartphone market. In its most recent financial report, the Korean giant blamed falling revenue on slower-than-expected Galaxy S9 sales.

The Chinese market is key for Huawei as it has come under fire from the United States, Australia and other nations over concerns it could facilitate Chinese government spying.

As the iPhone is still Apple's most-important product, accounting for about 60 per cent of revenue, analysts were looking for 41.6 million iPhone units in the quarter, and an average selling price of US$699, according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg News. The new models are rumored to bring different screens sizes, price points, increased performance, and new features to the table when they arrive next quarter.

"The launch of the new model - OnePlus 6, the one-model-a-year strategy, strong partnership with Amazon, whereby we leverage their resources, and offline expansion in partnership with Croma, and the five offline and one experience stores has helped us connect with the Indian consumers", said Agarwal. The recent launch of the Find X has also garnered Oppo some praise as the innovative, bezel-less and notch-less design has grabbed the attention of many.
