The South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics has lost its lead in the global 5G smartphone market.
In the first quarter of this year, it fell to fourth place.
According to market researchers at Strategy Analytics, Samsung shipped 17 million 5G smartphones, accounting for 12.7 percent of the global market last quarter.
In first place was Apple with a market share of 30.2 percent.
Strategy Analytics attributed this to the popularity of the iPhone 12 in China, Europe, and the U.S.
After Apple in the ranking were the Chinese brands Oppo and Vivo, which showed huge growth as they ate into Huawei's market share.
Globally, shipments of 5G smartphones last year rose almost 460 percent on year to 133 million units.
