At the No.3 sport was Vivo, with 17 million units shipped and a market share of 15%. Xiaomi, which now ranks fifth behind Apple, has just introduced its mid-range Mi 6 smartphone for $360 that puts serious pressure on the now-aging iPhone SE ($399).

Smartphone shipments in India grew 15 per cent to 29 million units in March quarter compared to the year-ago period, with top five brands capturing nearly 70 per cent of total segment, research firm Counterpoint said. According to the latest data published by Canalys, Huawei managed to ship 21 million units in Q1 2017, helping it to capture an 18% market share in the country.

Reith said the 2017 market will feel the impact of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship handset, and a widely expected announcement from Apple for its new iPhone later this year. Oppo was right behind as it delivered a bit under 20 million units. The good news for Chinese OEMs is that the top 3 brands, all local ones of course, now account for more than 50% of the shipments in the first quarter of 2017, with Huawei leading the charge, followed by Oppo and Vivo.

Vivo took the third spot with over 10 percent of total shipments with a growth rate of 36 percent in sequential shipments.
