Juniper on Thursday also reported that Lumia sales surged upwards by 12 percent in the second quarter of 2015 compared with the same quarter a year ago. Microsoft shipped 8.4 million devices for the second quarter of 2015, garnering less than 3 percent of the total market, Juniper said.
Overall, smartphone makers shipped 338 million smartphones globally to retailers in the second quarter, an increase of 16 percent. Apple continued its record-breaking streak with 47.5 million iPhone sales in the quarter. In China, revenues for iPhones increased by 112 percent to more than $13 billion, Juniper said.
Other Chinese smartphone makers generally saw shipments rise, with Huawei seeing 50 percent growth and Xiaomi increasing 33 percent. LG, based in South Korea, however, saw a 3 percent decline.
Juniper noted a decline in shipments for Samsung as well, but didn't indicate a percentage. Samsung has not been able to ship the volumes of the Galaxy S6 Edge as expected and plans to lower the price of the device and the Galaxy S6, as reported early Thursday.
