Newest numbers from China confirm that Huawei, and not Xiaomi is the number one phone maker in China (with regards to smartphone volume).
The analysis comes from China-based firm Canalys which claims that Huawei has trumped Xiaomi in the race for the numero uno phone maker in the world’s largest smartphone market of China.
Both Huawei and Xiaomi have had a gala time in 2015 so far, with most phones from both brands being a hit in China and elsewhere. Huawei has a much stronger international presence than Xiaomi, as you might already be aware.
The exact sales figures haven’t been obtained as yet, and are numbers for the third quarter for this year, i.e., Q3 2015. Huawei has tasted success with its new Honor 7 smartphone, while Xiaomi has had to make a comeback with the Redmi Note 2 after the Mi 4i failed to grab the market share the company would’ve hoped for.
With the new Mi 4c now on sale, Xiaomi will hope to grab lost ground.
