Apple will also need to ensure that they are attractive to emerging markets to retain their title as global brand leaders.The Second Battle for Market ShareLG posted its highest ever smartphones sales quarter, shipping 10.3 million in Q1 2013, driven by sales of the Optimus G and Nexus 4. The company improved its smartphone market share from last quarter to reach just over 5%.Huawei, which previously posted impressive sales in 2012 with the introduction of a range of new smartphones and tablets, shipped an estimated 10 million smartphones. The company along with ZTE accounted for approximately 10% of the shipments market.Nokia shipped 6.1 million smart devices in the first quarter and posted higher Lumia sales of 5.6 million compared to the previous quarter, a 27% rise.
