LG returned to the smartphone top five after a two-quarter absence, reaching record-high shipments in the process. Its smartphone volume for the quarter was driven in large part by its 3G smartphone portfolio, IDC noted, namely the L series and the Nexus 4.

Huawei has shown significant improvement from where it was a year ago, when it offered a handful of Ascend smartphones and had more limited presence outside the Asia/Pacific region. ZTE's first-quarter performance continued the trends established last year, with a strong showing in Asia/Pacific and North America.

"A year ago, it was common to see previous market leaders Nokia, BlackBerry (then Research In Motion), and HTC among the top five," said Ramon Llamas, research manager with IDC's Mobile Phone team, noting the major trend toward Chinese companies emerging among the leading smartphone vendors.

"While those companies have been in various stages of transformation since, Chinese vendors, including Huawei and ZTE as well as Coolpad and Lenovo, have made significant strides to capture new users with their respective Android smartphones."
