For example, the crown of leadership in these 12 months managed to change hands four times: at first it belonged to Apple, in the spring Samsung seized the initiative, but by the summer, due to problems with production at the plant in Vietnam, it temporarily lost to Xiaomi (together with Redmi and POCO).
