According to the report, Samsung continued its growth at 8.4%, as it recorded 78.4 million units shipments or a total of 20.6% share last quarter. Counterpoint explained that this is due to strong Note 10 and Galaxy A series sales.

“The company also posted an increased profit with an improved product mix. The company will continue to launch new A series smartphones, including some models with 5G, to try and maintain momentum,” Counterpoint added.

The research firm also noted that Huawei’s loss in overseas market would be a big opportunity for the Korean tech giant in coming quarters.

Meanwhile, Realme remained the fastest-growing smartphone brand, as it is now the 7th biggest smartphone vendor globally. The young mobile manufacturer shipped 10.2 million units or a total of 2.7% market share in Q3 2019.
