Samsung still ahead
Xiaomi was one of the world's top three smartphone producers in the third quarter of this year; the first time it's ever reached that position. The figures come from technology analyst company Canalys, which puts Huawei in second place and Samsung in the lead.
EE says Lenovo’s new Yoga 5G convertible laptop will be launched exclusively on its mobile network in the UK.
A new report from mobile analysts at Juniper Research estimates that 320.3 million smartphones were shipped worldwide in the first quarter of this year.
That's a year-on-year drop of almost 6%.
Lenovo will stop branding mobile phones as 'Motorola' later this year, according to a report on CNET.
Apparently the mobile phones will now be described as 'Moto by Lenovo', although the Motorola name will remain as a division of Lenovo.
Company insists that smartphones and tablets are not affected
Lenovo has admitted that it’s been shipping laptops and convertible laptop/tablet devices with a security vulnerability.
Between September and December last year, Windows-based laptops from Lenovo were loaded with software called Superfish. This ‘broke’ secure web pages, which meant that any fraudulent secure sites wouldn’t be detected.
