The latest numbers are in from IDC, looking at the smartphone market for the second quarter of 2015. According to the latest preliminary release from IDC, a total of 337.2 million smartphones were shipped worldwide in Q2 of 2015, which represents an 11.6% increase from the 302.1 million units in the second quarter of 2014. As you’d expect, Samsung and Apple continue to dominate the smartphone market, but IDC notes that Samsung is the only one in the top five that recorded a shipment volume decline year over year.

The report notes that, while the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge “arrived with mixed results”, the devices didn’t sell as expected; demand wasn’t as high, S6 Edge models were in limited supply, and, despite older models continuing to sell well, these generated in a decline of 2.3%.

Apple recorded a shipment volume increase mostly due to China, where it dominates the market, and Huawei holds the record for the biggest increase of 48.1 percent, mostly thanks to strong European and domestic sales, notes IDC.
