Huawei surprisingly rose to become the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world in the first two quarters of this year. Surprising because since May of last year one has been struggling with the consequences of the US ban.
But now the bans are slowly taking hold, Huawei is losing massive international market shares. And so of course had to give up the top position of the largest smartphone manufacturer again.
While Huawei still had a global market share of 21 percent in April, the value fell to 16 percent by August 2020. A loss of 5 percent market share within 4 months indicates that there must have been losses in the number of smartphones sold in the double-digit million range.
