Xiaomi Posts 116% YoY Growth, Says Canalys In Q1 Report

Xiaomi Posts 116% YoY Growth, Says Canalys In Q1 Report

In all, Apple captured over 12% of the market with its four most popular phones last quarter, which is quite an impressive achievement.

Nokia HMD, iTel, Xiaomi, Tecno, OnePlus and Huawei were the noted brands in the fastest growing category. HMD has been using its right to license the Nokia brand since 2017 and has steadily increased shipment volume. The iPhone 7, Apple's 2016 smartphone, shipped 5.4 million units, according to Strategy Analytics.

At the same time on the market "number one" remains Samsung.

Apple's growth came on the back of strong sales of the Apple iPhone X, while Xiaomi's growth was a result of exceptional performance in India and China, its two key markets.

India continues to become an important market for worldwide smartphone makers.

Despite rumours of an underperforming iPhone X in the quarter, Apple stated that the iPhone X was the most popular model each week in the March quarter. The company reported strong sales in India and China with a growth of 51% and 134% respectively. The company has become the fourth largest smartphone maker globally during first Quarter of 2018. This means the iPhone X is still on top of the game after securing the same position in the previous quarter.

The experience in Italy was very important for him'. "At the same time, we have to try and finish the league in the best possible way".

When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone we were all amazed at what the device had to offer, the introduction of the touch display was revolutionary to say the very least and we are still seeing other smartphone manufacturers copying what Apple is doing.

"Most encouraging for Huawei are the signs that progress is finally being made in Great Britain, with share rising to 5.9% - it needs to conquer this market if it's going to realise its ambition of becoming a premium choice for consumers".

Overall, 334.3 million smartphones were shipped in Q1, a drop of 2.9% when compared to Q1 2017 when 344.4 million smartphones were shipped. LG's smartphone shipments declined both annually (-23 percent) and sequentially (-18 percent) due to a revised smartphone launch strategy that led to no flagship launch in Q1 2018.

For brands like Gionee, Meizu, TCL and Lenovo, a rebound seems hard at this time.

iTel entered the top 10 smartphone brand list for the first time. Motorola did well but the sales for Lenovo smartphones declines in India and rest of APAC. A planned carrier announcement fell through, and the company seems to have shifted focus to markets where it is performing well already and sees room for further growth. Linda Sui, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, "We estimate Xiaomi Redmi 5A shipped 5.4 million units for fifth place and 2 percent marketshare worldwide in Q1 2018". That's almost 5% of the 345 million smartphones that shipped in total.
