The Honor brand leads the Chinese smartphone market for the first time

Strategy Analytics reports that the Chinese smartphone market fell 14% year-on-year to 67.7 million units in the second quarter of this year. One of the main reasons for such a sharp drop is the restrictions associated with the ongoing pandemic.

For the first time, the Honor brand took the lead in China: its share was 19.4%. In second place is Vivo with 18.8% and Oppo closes the top 3 with 18.0%. The top 5 also included Xiaomi and Apple, whose scores are 15.7% and 15.4%, respectively. The total share of all other players was 12.9%.

Oddly enough, among the top smartphone vendors in China, only Honor saw a 92.6% year-over-year increase in revenue. All other companies from the top 5 showed negative momentum.
