The market has been affected, and the Chinese brands have felt its impact the most. And even though the anti-Chinese sentiments are high in the country, analysts don’t expect the brands to suffer in demand. “Despite the sentiment, the effect on Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Realme is likely to be minimal, as alternatives by Samsung, Nokia, or even Apple are hardly price-competitive,” said Adwait Mardikar, Research Analyst, Canalys.

But amongst all this chaos, there is one brand which seems largely unaffected, and that is Apple. Apple was the least impacted among the top-10 vendors as shipments fell just 20 percent year-on-year to just over 250,000 in Q2 2020, the report adds. With the festive season approaching, brands will be hoping that demand and buying trends pick up to salvage over the next few quarters.
