Specifically, Huawei came in second place after Samsung, continuing to beat apple. In the case of Huawei phones, the company sold 54.2 million phones in the second quarter of 2018, still ahead of apple, even though the number fell to 52 million in the third quarter of 2018. In the first three quarters of 2018, Huawei sold 145.5 million phones. Notably, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, has said he wants to achieve sales targets of 200 million units this year long before. To meet that goal, Huawei still needs to sell more than 50 million handsets in the fourth quarter of 2018. Currently, Huawei’s newly released Mate20 series, honor Magic 2 and other models are expected to help Huawei phones compete for the global mobile phone market in the fourth quarter.

Apple ranks third behind Huawei phones. Apple sold 46.9 million iPhones in the third quarter of 2018. Apple saw a significant boost in sales during the quarter, compared with 41.3 million in the second quarter of 2018. Apple sold more than 140 million phones in the first three quarters. Notably, for the three models Apple released in September, the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max continue to rise in price, which helps apple continue to account for most of the global handset industry’s profits. Xiaomi is fourth after apple. Not long ago, Xiaomi’s founder Lei Jun announced that Xiaomi’s mobile phone shipments officially exceeded 100 million units on October 26, two months ahead of the target for the whole year of 2018. Finally, for this reason, Xiaomi sold 942,000 phones worldwide in the first three quarters of 2018, from January to September. As a result, lei said, Xiaomi sold more than 100 million phones at the end of October, which should be no problem. In addition, Xiaomi’s high-end flagship phones have become a new growth point. On October 6, 2018, Xiaomi officially announced that the shipments of the 8 series exceeded 6 million four months after its release, indicating that Xiaomi phones have achieved certain achievements in the middle and high-end mobile phone market. After Xiaomi, OPPO phones ranked fifth, with 83.2 million units sold between January and September 2018. For all of 2018, OPPO should also sell more than 100 million phones.
