The gap in global phone sales between Apple and Huawei is smaller than ever.
Apple, the world’s second biggest phone seller by volume, sold 41 million iPhones in the second quarter. Huawei, the No. 3 global phone brand thanks to its popularity in China and Europe, sold 38.5 million phones during the same period, according to Counterpoint Research.
Huawei’s numbers are up 20 percent from the same quarter last year, while Apple’s year-on-year growth was just 2 percent. Of course, the Cupertino, California-based company has little to worry about.
