Global smartphones fell 11% in the first quarter compared to the same period last year, according to data from market analysts firm Canalys released on Tuesday. The figures show that the top two global brands Samsung and Apple expanded their market share from 22% to 24% and 15% to 18%, respectively. Chinese smartphone makers Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo saw their global market shares shrink, with shipments by the three Chinese brands accounting for 31% of the global total compared to 35% for the same period in 2021. Canalys’ analysis notes that the overall decrease is due to “unfavorable economic conditions and sluggish seasonal demand.” [Canalys]
