Market-research firms Counterpoint and Canalys have released their respective reports on the world’s top smartphone brands in the third quarter of 2019.

Both have the same companies listed in the top 3 — Samsung, Huawei, and Apple — with Huawei being the biggest winner. In Counterpoint’s account, it achieved a 28.5% year-on-year growth, while in Canalys’ report, it increased its shipments to 66.8 million, up 29% over the previous year. It’s a surprising development amid its troubles with the United States government, thanks to a strong performance in China.
