With the iPhone 11 family’s steady increase in sales, Apple may be paving its way back to second place in the world market. smartphone. The information was published on Tuesday (8) by DigiTimes staff.
According to market analysts, Apple may resume the “silver medal” in the fourth quarter of 2019. In addition, this move should not only happen on its own merit but also because the company had a “little help” from the Trump government.
As the trade war between China and the United States intensified, Huawei – currently occupying the second position – eventually lost ground in the western market. The Chinese giant has even launched the Mate 30 family, but the lack of support for Google applications has delayed the arrival of the devices in the west.
While the “soap opera” involving Huawei’s situation is not resolved, the company should see its sales plummet by 10 million. This is because, despite the problems with the US, the Chinese managed to “hold” the 60 million units in the second quarter.
However, this is unlikely to be repeated in Q3 and Gartner estimates that Huawei will ship about 50 million units. While this is a substantial number for a “US blacklisted” company, the iPhone 11 family’s good sales performance may take Apple to second place.
According to some analysts, the Cupertino company could ship about 70 million iPhones in the fourth quarter of 2019. That number is expected to exceed Huawei’s forecast of 60 million in the same period. Anyway, this is a very early prediction and only time can confirm it.
