Unlike them, Chinese technology giant Huawei noticed an upward trend.
That is, shipments of Huawei smartphones increased by 50% in the first quarter compared to the same period last year, while Apple iPhones fell by 30%, according to new IDC survey data.
At the same time, Samsung's deliveries fell eight percent compared to the previous year, CNBC said.
The latest data show that Huawei holds 19% of global smartphone banking, the highest percentage ever.
According to IDC estimates, this Chinese company is now one step away from Samsung when it comes to the position of the world's largest smartphone supplier, as Apple has already become the second largest smartphone reseller.
Huawei, for the first time, overtook Apple for the first time in 2018.
Apple's Q1 sales were affected by a weak share in China, where the company's revenue fell 22%.
At the same time, Kanalis's survey data show that Huawei now has a 34 percent stake in the triumph of the Chinese smartphone, thanks to a 41 percent jump in sales compared to the same quarter last year.
