A look at the fourth quarter of 2018 shows that many well-known smartphone brands in Europe have long been forgotten. HMD and its Nokia brand would be particularly positive, they have outpaced Sony, HTC, LG and Cía. In a very short time. Although the 2018 Christmas business was not good for HMD, with a year-on-year growth of -18.3%, it was able to remain among the top 5 European smartphone brands.

Meanwhile, the other Chinese are increasing. Xiaomi now ranks fourth in Europe, with year-on-year growth of 62 percent. Xiaomi is responsible for 6 percent of the European smartphone market, although the group will not be officially represented in Germany until 2019. Huawei is equally strong, while Apple and Samsung are losing some ground.

China is taking over Europe

Basically, Chinese brands have grown almost inexorably in recent years. More than a third of the market is already in the hands of China. That will be even more drastic in the coming years if Xiaomi and Huawei keep growing remotely. (via)
