In particular, Huawei went from 28.1 million smartphone sales in Q1 of 2016 to 34.2 million in the last 3 months. That translates to 1.5% points against Apple. On the other hand, OPPO had to 25.6 million in shipments globally. Vivo sits in the fifth place with 18 million smartphone shipments.

Top 5 Global Smartphone Vendors for Q1 2017

1. Samsung - 22.8%
2. Apple - 14.9%
3. Huawei - 9.8%
4. OPPO - 7.4%
5. Vivo - 5.2 %
6. Others - 39.9%

"The first quarter smartphone results further prove that the smartphone industry is not dead and that growth still exists," said Ryan Reith, program vice president with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "There is no question that 2016 was a pivotal year for the industry as growth dipped to low single digits for the first time. However, we believe the industry will show some rebound in 2017, and the strong first quarter results certainly support this argument. In addition to what shipped in 1Q17, big flagship announcements from Huawei with the P10 devices and Samsung with the Galaxy S8 devices show that innovation is still possible. And despite any formal announcements from Apple it is safe to say the industry is highly anticipating what comes from this year's iPhone announcements."

Interestingly, other big and iconic mobile brands like LG, Sony, and Lenovo / Moto failed to crack in the top 5 list.
