It dominates the online space (56% of all smartphone shipments during the quarter) and its offline presence is growing (33% of all smartphone shipments offline). Huawei reaches the second position with 8% in the online segment largely due to its Honor series of devices. According to the report, it has everything Xiaomi and Samsung have to become a major regional player. However, the actual second place goes to Samsung, which shows a 21% yea-over-year growth, which is due mainly to its budget devices - Galaxy J7 Nxt, Galaxy J2 (2017) and J2 (2018). The high-end and more expensive units did not sell well. Vivo comes third with 18% year-over-year growth thanks to three models: Y71, V9 and Y83. It also has a strong offline position. It is followed by fellow company Oppo which has experienced 15 year-over-year growth and Transsion, which is focused mainly offline, comes 5th.
