Counterpoint Research has revealed that Xiaomi, China’s largest smartphone manufacturer by volume, just overtook Samsung. This is the first time the company has achieved such a feat.
Due to a combination of factors, Xiaomi has overtaken Samsung in June 2021. However, if you take into account the whole Q2 2021, Xiaomi is still second to Samsung.
According to Xiaomi, 26 percent of its month-on-month growth was achieved to surpass Samsung. For June 2021, the Chinese firm’s shipment market share was 17.1%. With 15.7 per cent of the market share, Samsung is second. Apple is third with 14.3 percent.
Tarun Pathak, research director at Counterpoint, said:
Xiaomi has been making consistent and aggressive efforts to fill the gap created by the Decline of Huawei since its inception. The Oem has expanded in Huawei’s and Honor’s legacy markets like China, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The Recovery of China, Europe, and India in June and the decline in supply for Samsung helped Xiaomi.
Since its 2011 debut, Xiaomi has sold more than 800 million smartphones. Since its debut in 2011, Xiaomi has been the most popular smartphone seller in India. Samsung has been fighting for second place.
Although the Korean company lost its appeal in India, it has regained its popularity with Galaxy A and M series smartphones. Although Xiaomi is known for its budget smartphones, it has become more attractive to premium smartphone manufacturers.
The Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro, and Mi 11 Ultra smartphones are a great alternative to the Galaxy S series. In addition, a new Mi MIX 4 smartphone will be introduced by the firm, which will feature under-screen camera technology. We are interested to see how the battle between Xiaomi and Samsung will develop in the coming years.
