Analytical agency Nikkei has published a forecast for the state of the smartphone market next year. According to him, Xiaomi will try to take the lead in fighting for the largest smartphone seller.
The report says that Xiaomi has told some of its suppliers that it plans to sell 300 million smartphones in 2021. However, Qualcomm and MediaTek cannot handle that volume of components for one company, especially during a pandemic.
Nevertheless, even if the company manages to sell just over 240 million smartphones, it will take first place. Huawei and Honor will no longer be able to compete for leadership in the smartphone market. Now the main competitors of Xioami will be Apple and Samsung.
