Counterpoint’s newest research puts Xiaomi as the world’s No 1 smartphone maker. The company has finally surpassed Samsung in sales. It grew sales 26% month on month in June 2021, making it the fastest-growing brand for the month.

Only time will tell if Samsung can reclaim its No 1 smartphone maker position, that’s if the company solves its supply constraint problems.

Will Xiaomi be able to maintain its new position? Its recent strides are definitely worth looking out for.
