According to Strategy Analytics, the Chinese vendor shipped 12.7 million smartphones globally in Q3 2013, representing a 67% increase on the same period in 2012 while giving the company a 5% market share. Huawei’s most popular smartphones were the P6 and G610.

Samsung’s shipments grew 55% annually to 88.4 million units in Q3, 2013, a figure that is more than two times the size of nearest rival Apple’s shipments. Apple, however, is set for a rebound in Q4 2013 due to high demand for its iPhone 5s.
