Huawei was predicting that within a few years it would sell more smartphones than Apple. It turns out that these were not bragging boast, because the Chinese manufacturer can overtake its rival already this quarter.

For two years, the situation in the mobile market has been more or less the same. The biggest manufacturer is Samsung, followed by Apple, and Huawei is at the last stage of the podium. As the first two manufacturers leap in place, Huawei is still growing – not as well as the two Oppo and Vivo locations, but sales growth is solid despite the noticeable rise in smartphone prices. Undoubtedly, the success of the company aroused the appetite of its bosses, especially Richard Yu, who said last year that by 2019 Huawei would outperform Apple in terms of smartphones sold. Meanwhile, all indications are that the prediction of Huawei CEO will be much faster.

The new report suggests that in the current third quarter of 2017, Huawei will most likely sell more smartphones than Apple . Already in the second quarter, the Chinese have run out of ammunition (2.5 million difference in the number of smartphones sold are little), and now they can succeed. If Huawei is indeed outrunning Apple, then it will be due to two factors. The more obvious is the increase in sales of Huawei smartphones in markets such as China, Japan, South-East Asia and Europe, including Poland. The second factor will be the fall in sales of smartphones Apple , which is to lead to … iPhone 8 (and iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, if they arise). It's just Apple's autumn news that the US company's fans are holding back the purchase of phones with the logo of a biting apple on the cover. This year flagships will be available for sale only at the end of the third quarter, so they will not be able to improve the result of the manufacturer enough to make up the current losses.

In the next quarter, the results are likely to improve significantly, so Apple will most likely overtake Huawei. But remember that the Chinese have not said the last word, and some time ago they announced that Huawei Mate 10 will be able to beat the iPhone 8. Until I am curious who will win the competition.
