Apple dropped into the fourth position for global smartphone sales during the third quarter of 2020, according to an analyst firm. In a report Monday, Gartner reported that total sales of smartphones during the quarter worldwide reached 366 million — down almost 6% since last year as fewer people buy phones during the coronavirus pandemic.
Samsung sold 80.8 million phones in the third quarter, growing by 2.2% since last year. Huawei sold 51.8 million, down more than 20%, while fellow Chinese smartphone vendor Xiaomi sold 35% more phones compared to the same quarter last year. Xiaomi’s sales of 44.4 million smartphones pushed Apple out of the top three.
