Xiaomi is once again the leader of the Chinese smartphone market, which incidentally is also the biggest in the world. Not only that, but Xiaomi has managed to achieve a record-breaking 26% market share in April, according to research conducted by a local firm. This result was proudly shared on Weibo by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun.
The second best selling brand in China is Honor with 15.7% of the market, though if we count it together with parent brand Huawei that jumps to 23.7%, so pretty close to the No.1. Coming in third is LeEco, which has climbed to 10.5% of the market in record time (considering its entry into the smartphone space happened just over a year ago).
Apple has 8.2% market share, Meizu gets 7%, 360 has 4.5%, while Samsung is only at 3.2% amazingly. That said, the Others category is pretty big at 17.1%.
While Xiaomi’s achievement isn’t one to be ignored, do keep in mind that these numbers are for only one month of phone sales, and things can look rather different when taking into account a whole quarter or the full year.
