According to data from Strategy Analytics, Google’s mobile platform is present in 88% of all devices sold between July 1st and the end of September.
The big moment for Android, according to the consultancy, would be directly related to Apple’s “lackluster” sales in China and Africa, which boosted the consumption of devices with Google software.
With the launch of Android, Apple’s iOS lost ground and dropped to 12% market share. BlackBerry and Windows did not obtain substantial numbers in the survey.
In total for the third quarter of 2016, Android rose 10.3%, while the iPhones fell 5.2%, within a volume of 375 million smartphones sold.
