Huawei achieves its long-term goal!

Counterpoint Research claims that Huawei finished April in the first place with 21.4 percent of the global smartphone market share. The Chinese tech titan bested former leader Samsung with 19.1 percent of the market share.

Huawei made this possible as Samsung dropped by 29 percent versus March. Also, Samsung suffered massively because of the strict lockdowns in India and Europe.

The research firm noted that the Galaxy S20 5G series performed noticeably weaker than previous flagship lineups. Samsung's production was greatly affected by the pandemic as well.

Huawei's success could also be attributed to patriotic Chinese consumers who have given preference to the company's products because of the imposed US ban.

In China, sales are recovering as well which suggests that Huawei could potentially end Q2 of 2020 as the largest smartphone maker in the world.

There's no guarantee that Huawei will continue this success once the global market have fully recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic effect though.

But in the meantime, Huawei can boast that it has achieved its long-term goal. They made the impossible possible.
