Xiaomi becomes the biggest Smartphone manufacturer
This is the first time ever, in June 2021, Xiaomi has become the number one brand in global monthly smartphone sales (sell-through) volumes
While this is a great feat for Xiaomi, it could prove to be temporary once Samsung’s production recovers from Vietnam’s COVID-19 wave, but the race has gotten close
Xiaomi surpassed Samsung and Apple in June 2021 to become the number one smartphone brand in the world for the first time ever, according to Counterpoint Research’s Monthly Market Pulse Service.
Xiaomi’s sales grew 26% MoM in June 2021, making it the fastest-growing brand for the month. Xiaomi was also the number two brand globally for Q2 2021 in terms of sales, and cumulatively, has sold close to 800 million smartphones since its inception in 2011.
