Xiaomi once again leads the Chinese smartphone market share in April, beating Apple by selling three times more than the California based company. According to the local research, Xiaomi has managed to get to the point of record-breaking market shares of 26% in April. The result was shared on Chinese social site Weibo by Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun.
Coming behind the Xiaomi in second is Huawei’s sub-brand Honor with 15.7% market share, however if it’s combined with that of Huawei than it jumps to 23.7%, which still isn’t enough to beat Xiaomi. Surprisingly, the third brand is the new entrant in smartphone market – LeEco, which has 10.5% market share within just one year.
Apple comes at the fourth after LeEco with 8.2% market share, Meizu at fifth with 7%, 360 at sixth with 4.5%, whereas Samsung has only 3.2% of market share, which is another surprise. The others category are pretty much huge at 17%.
It’s a big achievement for Xiaomi, since the company has managed to beat the likes of Apple and Samsung. But to note things down, these stats are for only one month of phone sales and we can’t be sure that things will be same in coming days, but that said the achievement of Xiaomi shouldn’t be ignored.
