In the second quarter of 2020, Huawei overtook Samsung Electronics as the world’s biggest seller of mobile phones, shipping 55.8 million devices contrasted with Samsung’s 53.7 million.

From the same quarter a year before, while Huawei’s sales had dropped 5%, Samsung had an even bigger drop of 30%, because of COVID-19 causing interference in important markets like Brazil, the US and Europe.

The Chinese company’s overseas shipments had fallen 27% in Q2 from a year earlier, but its power in the Chinese market has boosted which helped it make a comeback from the coronavirus where it currently sells more than 70% of its phones.

“Our business has demonstrated exceptional resilience in these difficult times. Amidst a period of unprecedented global economic slowdown and challenges, we’re continuing to grow and further our leadership position,” a spokesman from Huawei said. 

However, Huawei’s position as a top seller may be brief once other markets make a comeback mostly because of the interruption caused economically. 

On Friday, Apple will launch its Q2 iPhone shipment data.
