vivo is the leading smartphone vendor in the Asia Pacific, with annual shipment growth of 215 percent, says Yiwen Wu, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics.

vivo has grown past Xiaomi, OPPO, and Apple in the past year paving the way for it to take the top spot in 5G smartphones. According to Wu, vivo has capitalized on the decline of Huawei. He also mentioned that "the combination of leading technology and affordable prices have made Vivo’s smartphones, such as its iQOOO U3 5G and iQOOO 7 5G, the most popular 5G devices in the region."

Meanwhile, Xiaomi captured the 2nd place in 5G smartphone shipments in the Asia Pacific region in the same quarter. 

China propelled Xiaomi's 5G smartphone shipments, which were up by 286 percent annually in the 2nd quarter of 2021. Xiaomi's Redmi family of smartphones, led by the Redmi Note 9 5G and Note 9 Pro 5G, as well as its Mi family of 5G smartphones such as the Mi 10 Youth 5G are top sellers for the vendor in China, says Ville-Petteri Ukonaho, Associate Director at Strategy Analytics.

vivo and Xiaomi's rise on top doesn't mean that other Chinese vendors are not standing still. OPPO took this quarter's third spot.

OPPO expects a big quarter in Q3 2021 as it launches three new 5G models in its upcoming Reno 6 series, said Ken Hyers, Director at Strategy Analytics.

Apple and Samsung took the last two spots with 18.5 percent and 6.6 percent total shipments, respectively.

Congratulations, vivo!
