Samsung tops global smartphone sales with 22% share
Samsung Electronics Co. accounted for a 22 percent share of the global smartphone market in August, edging Huawei with a 16 percent share to become the world's top smartphone vendor.
The six percent gap between the two vendors is the largest since February when China's was severely hit by COVID-19 lockdowns.
Samsung ceded its top vendor status to Huawei in April, but it recaptured the position after a recovery in the Indian smartphone market, which is the world's second-largest.
Samsung has been expanding in India, where there is growing anti-China sentiment following a border clash between the two countries.
Apple Inc. was at third spot with a 12 percent share, followed by Xiaomi Corp. with an 11 percent share.
The US ban on Huawei for the supply of semiconductors made with its equipment, software, and design without prior approval is expected to give a good opportunity to other brands.
