Nokia some years ago was a firm which set standards in the mobile telephony market. The crisis for the company came at a time when smartphones appeared on the market and Nokia couldn't deal with production of devices that could compete with phones made by Samsung or Apple. Nokia brand appeared again on market in December 2016, and since this time whole Nokia brand is in possession of HMD company. Basing on the rankings, return of Nokia to the market looks promising, and especially positive for HMD may be the latest ranking published by Counterpoint.
In the newest ranking of Counterpoint HMD is located at 9th place. If we take into account the time that the brand operates on the smartphone market in comparison to other companies in this ranking, this position is impressive.

First position in Counterpoint's ranking belongs to Samsung, on second place unexpectedly was located Huawei.
