Samsung's Galaxy smartphones beat Apple's iPhones to the top in the U.S. market during the third quarter of the year.
According to market researcher Strategy Analytics on Monday, Samsung accounted for a 33.7 percent share of the U.S. smartphone market in the third quarter ahead of Apple's 30.2 percent.
LG came third with 14.7 percent, followed by Lenovo with 8.4 percent.
The last time Samsung topped the market was in the second quarter of 2017.
The third and fourth quarters have usually been dominated by Apple, which rolls out its new iPhone in the autumn, leading to a surge in sales. But this year, the coronavirus epidemic caused supply glitches for Apple and the iPhone 12 ended up being released a month later than usual.
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 in the U.S. in August and Galaxy Z Fold 2 in September.
