"Samsung Galaxy S9 series helped increase the company's share in the ultra-premium segment. Samsung doubled its share in the premium-tier ($600-800), but faced tough competition in the mid and low-tier segments from Chinese OEMs (Oppo, Vivo, Huawei, Xiaomi)," the report noted. Xiaomi, Samsung and Huawei's Honor brand helped drive the uptick in the $100-199 price band volume, in various markets including India and South-East Asia.

"These three brands captured almost half the $100-199 price band. We will likely see an uptick in mid-tier price band share after a marketing push from Oppo, Vivo, Huawei in their home market and in India," said the report.
