LG pushed out of the top 5 largest smartphone manufacturers list by Huawei and Xiaomi.

The latest report from market research firm IDC shows a shakeup between the world's top smartphone companies. As of Q2 2015, LG is no longer on the list of top 5 largest smartphone manufacturers. Instead, Both Huawei and Xiaomi are now on the list and have even pushed Lenovo to 5th place in terms of worldwide shipments.

The same report claims global shipments have amounted to 337.2 million smartphones during Q2 2015. This is compared to 302.1 million the same quarter last year, which represents an increase of 11.6 percent. However, it's worth noting that Samsung has lost market share during this time frame, though the company remains the world's largest smartphone manufacturer with 73.2 million smartphone shipped.

Apple's excellent financial results are even better this quarter as iPhone shipments have risen from 35.2 million to 47.5 million. Huawei and Xiaomi take third and fourth with 29.9 million and 17.9 million smartphones shipped, respectively. Lenovo is hanging by a thread in 5th place with 16.2 million smartphones shipped and a 4.8 percent market share.

6th place is LG with 15.4 million smartphones shipped and a 4.6 percent market share.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
