Vivo tops the Chinese smartphone market and Honor beats Huawei

Vivo has topped the home smartphone market. It has defined both OPPO and Xiaomi, while Huawei has already passed ahead of Honor.

Vivo shipped 18.3 million smartphones in the second quarter of 2021, securing a share of 24%. The company shipped 4.2 million fewer smart phones in the same period in 2020. Vivo managed to increase its lead over OPPO, which took 21% of the market.

Top 3 was closed by Xiaomi. It has been ramping up shipments for several quarters in a row, but still cannot get close to BBK Electronics' brands. At the end of the second quarter of 2021 the share of the company from Beijing was 17%.

The Honor brand is gradually beginning to come back to life. After separating from Huawei at the end of 2020, it was able to overtake the once parent company for the first time. The latter's share dropped from 30% in the second quarter of 2020 to 8% in the reporting period.
