Nearly 384 million smartphones were sold, representing 84% of the total mobile phones sold in the first quarter, the New York-listed research and advisory company said.
Apple’s smartphone sales returned to growth in the first quarter with a rise of 4% year-on-year, while Samsung’s mid-tier smartphones faced competition from its Chinese counterparts, which led to the fall in sales on an annual basis.
The Chinese smartphone makers Huawei and Xiaomi, however have gained higher positions in the global market with 18.3% and 124% growth in the first quarter.
