Xiaomi is the leader of the 5G market, but who is second and third?
According to the news of Gizchina, analysts predict that Xiaomi will become the leader in Central and Eastern Europe by the end of 2021. In addition, in 2022, rival companies will not be the leader of the 5G smartphone market in this region. So what’s the secret of success? First of all, it benefits a lot from Huawei’s absence.

This is Xiaomi’s position in the 5G smartphone market. Apple took the second place in this market with a share of 26 percent. The iPhone 12 series has contributed greatly to the success of the US-based Apple. In third place is South Korea-based Samsung. In the third quarter of this year, it had a share of 11.5%. However, this rate is three times less (34.3 percent) compared to the previous year.
Realme’s fourth place can also be considered a success. It controls 7.9 percent of the 5G smartphone market in Central and Eastern Europe. For example, a year ago its share in this market was only 0.9 percent. OnePlus was also in the top five. OnePlus’ 5G devices make up 2.5 percent of the market, though 1.8 percent less than the previous year.
