Vivo summits Thai smartphone market in Q2

In a battle of the China smartphone makers, Vivo slid ahead of Oppo in Thailand’s smartphone market in Q2.

According to IDC, Vivo reached top spot with 19.5 percent market share, thanks to its focus on the affordable Y series with low-end models Y11 and Y15. On the other hand, Oppo dropped to third with a 16.9 percent slice of the market as sales of some of its newly launched models were dampened due to temporary price increases.

Sandwiched between the two China players is Samsung, who continues to find success with the reasonably priced Galaxy A series. Its higher priced Galaxy A71 was among the top-selling models.

realme and Apple complete the top five list in a quarter that saw the Thai smartphone market ship 4.3 million units for a 21.2 percent rise quarter-over-quarter but dropping 8.8 percent year-over-year.
