On top for two months straight

To recall, Samsung's drop in shipments is due to the strict lockdowns in India and Europe back in March.

For the month of May, the Huawei retained the lead by a small margin based on a Counterpoint Research data obtained by PhoneArena.

Even if the lockdown restrictions are easing up globally, Huawei manages to outpace Samsung by 0.1 percent for the month of May.

Huawei got a market share of 19.7 percent. Samsung, on the other hand, recorded 19.6 percent. The difference between the two is very small and Samsung might eventually regain the lead next month.

But, being on top for two months straight is still remarkable for a company hampered by  US restrictions due to geopolitical reasons as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other phone makers in the top 6 are Apple with 13 percent and OPPO, vivo, and Xiaomi with 8 percent each.
