Samsung wrested the lead in global smartphone sales back from China's Huawei in the third quarter of this year.
Samsung was overtaken by Huawei in the second quarter by a fraction of a percent, but reclaimed the lead in the third quarter with a market share of 22 percent, according to a report from market watcher Counterpoint Research released on Sunday.
Huawei ranked second with 14 percent, followed closely by Xiaomi and Apple.
Analysts attribute the jump in Samsung's sales to strong performances by the new Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy A smartphones, as well as pent-up demand as coronavirus lockdowns have been eased worldwide.
