IDC: "This quarter's results are a clear sign that 2019 will be another down year for worldwide smartphone shipments. The only highlight from a vendor perspective was Huawei, which made a strong statement by growing volume and share despite market headwinds…The overall smartphone market continues to be challenged in almost all areas, yet Huawei was able to grow shipments by 50%, not only signifying a clear number two in terms of market share but also closing the gap on the market leader Samsung." https://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS45042319

Canalys: ”Huawei’s smartphone shipments grew 50.2% in Q1 2019 to cement its position as the world’s #2 smartphone vendor." https://www.canalys.com/newsroom/canalys-apple-iphone-shipments-fall-23-as-global-smartphone-market-remains-in-freefall

Counterpoint: “Huawei became the second largest smartphone brand by shipments without a significant presence in an important market like the United States. It was also the fastest growing brand among the top 10. At this pace, we expect Huawei to remain ahead of Apple at the end of 2019. What has helped Huawei is the pace of its innovations. It was the first to introduce features like reverse wireless charging, on-board AI, advanced camera, and more. A dual-brand (HONOR) strategy has helped Huawei build a connection to younger profile consumers and gain additional market share in a sluggish Chinese market. Huawei is now a match for Samsung in smartphone hardware. Like Samsung and Apple, Huawei also is becoming increasingly vertically integrated. We believe it is Huawei that Samsung should be worrying about rather than Apple.” https://www.counterpointresearch.com/huaweis-global-smartphone-market-share-reaches-highest-ever-level-q1-2019/

Strategy Analytics: “Samsung remains the world’s number one smartphone vendor, but it is coming under growing pressure from Huawei, who has larger presence in the huge China market. Huawei surged 50 percent annually and outgrew all major rivals to ship 59.1 million smartphones worldwide during Q1 2019, up from 39.3 million in Q1 2018. Huawei captured a record 18 percent global smartphone marketshare in Q1 2019. Huawei is closing in on Samsung and streaking ahead of Apple, due to its strong presence across China, Western Europe and Africa.” https://news.strategyanalytics.com/press-release/devices/strategy-analytics-global-smartphone-shipments-dip-4-percent-q1-2019
