The great Apple had been overtaken by the China’s smartphone maker, Huawei, for the first time in June and July. This happens because Huawei surpassed Apple global smartphone sales for the first time in June and July to become world’s second-biggest smartphone, while Samsung is behind.

Moreover, Huawei relatively weak presence in Indian, South Asian and North America markets could still limits Huawei’s potential to take a second place position behind Samsung.
However, Apple was able to recover the second spot due to its imminent release of new range of iPhones, the development was described as significant milestone, with Huawei breaking the duopoly enjoyed by Samsung and Apple for the past 5 years.
