12 May, 2018 Samsung

The results are in and Samsung is still the number one manufacturer and supplier of smartphones in the European region at the end of Q1, 2018, with Apple coming in second. Apparently, Samsung managed to ship 15 million units during the last quarter, while Apple managed to sell only about 10 million smartphones. At a time when smartphone shipments have fallen by as much as 6.3% (YoY comparison), it could have been commendable that the Korean company has still managed hold on to the number one position, had it not been for the fact that they have actually slipped by 15% from last year! Market share of Apple on the other hand, fell by 5.4%.

What is more interesting is the fact that even in a high-profile region like Europe, Chinese manufacturer Huawei has grown by a whopping 38.6% by shipping 7.4 million smartphones in the region during this quarter! Not that Huawei wasn't already a force to reckon with, it's just that the rate at which the company is growing in the international market is quite amazing.
