China's phone manufacturer Huawei has beaten South Korean company Samsung in global smartphone shipments. In the second quarter of 2020, Huawei shipped the most phones worldwide. According to a report by analyst firm Canalys, this is the first time in nine years that Chinese company Huawei has overtaken Samsung in the global market. Not only this, it is also happening for the first time in nine years that in a quarter, no other company has been number one in place of Samsung or Apple.
Number one has been done
This quarter Huawei has shipped 5.58 million units worldwide, down 5% from the previous year. At the same time, Samsung, ranked second, shipped 5.37 crore smartphones. For Samsung, this is a 30 per cent drop over the second quarter.

The report says that Huawei has been dominating its domestic market by increasing 8% of Chinese shipments in the second quarter. The company now sells more than 70 percent of its smartphones in China.

Company emerging even after US ban
Let me tell you that the US government ban on Huawei is still going on. Because of this, the company has also suffered a lot outside China. The company's overseas shipments declined 27 percent in this quarter. Apart from this, due to the American ban on Huawei's new phones, the company cannot use Google mobile service. Therefore Huawei now offers users the facility of App Gallery instead of Google Play Store in their smartphone.
