Lead: Global 5G smartphone sales in the first quarter of this year exceeded nearly 30% of last year! Samsung Huawei led the big score.
Wisdom stuff April 29 news, recently, the world's well-known market research organization Strategy Analytics provides a report showing that in the first quarter of 2020, global shipments of 5G smartphones reached 24.1 million units, this figure is higher than 18.7 million in 2019 Taiwan's shipments increased by nearly 29%.
Although the sales of 5G mobile phones have been severely interrupted due to the impact of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the purchasing power of 5G mobile phones by Chinese users has benefited from the rapid launch of 5G networks in China before the end of 2019 and the demand for faster new mobile phones Still strong. Strategy Analytics pointed out that the demand for 5G in South Korea, the United States and Europe continues to grow. Although all countries are affected by the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the progress of 5G signal tower construction projects in each country is continuing because the 5G signal tower builders are still working outdoors. In addition, hospitals, universities and enterprises have begun to use 5G for online teleconferencing and bandwidth-intensive applications.
Samsung ’s Galaxy S20 series models released this quarter have undoubtedly helped the sales of 5G smartphones, thanks to Qualcomm and Samsung chipsets that support 5G functions. In the first quarter of 2020, Samsung's 5G mobile phone shipments were 8.3 million units, and its market share accounted for 34.4% of global sales. It was in a leading position among similar products. It is reported that the sales of the S20 5G and S20 Ultra 5G launched by the company have been successful.

In contrast, affected by the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, China ’s Huawei encountered security issues when it rolled out its 5G equipment to other countries, so almost all of its 8 million 5G smartphones were sold domestically. Huawei leads the Chinese market with its own chipset and 5G modem, and ranks second in the world with a market share of 33.2%. Three other Chinese manufacturers-Vivo (12%), Xiaomi (10.4%) and OPPO (5%) shipped a total of 6.6 million units. These 5G smartphones mainly rely on Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipset for 5G connections.
Strategy Analytics predicts that 5G mobile phone shipments will "continue to grow substantially in 2020" in light of Chinese consumers' demand for 5G, but the company has not provided forecasts for other regions. In addition, China ’s three major operators actively promoted 5G commercialization in the first quarter. In the first quarter, China Mobile and China Telecom ’s 5G package users reached 31.72 million and 16.61 million, respectively. China Unicom has not disclosed the number of 5G package users. From this point of view, the amount of users who handle 5G packages is far greater than the global sales of 52.1 million 5G mobile phones in the first quarter of 2020, which proves that most users who purchase 5G mobile phones are using 5G packages.
Strategy Analytics predicted in November last year that from the launch effect of the first batch of 5G iPhones in the third quarter of 2019, Apple is expected to lead 5G smartphone shipments in 2020. However, Apple was not on the list in the sales table for the first quarter of this year, because the impact of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic caused the mass production of Apple's new machine to be one month later than the normal plan. It may postpone the first batch production time to this year. In the fourth quarter, this move may reduce its total smartphone sales this year.
Conclusion: 5G smartphone shipments are expected to continue to grow in 2020
Domestically, the epidemic of new pneumonia has gradually eased. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said it will accelerate the development of 5G in 2020, and more than 20 provinces and cities have issued 5G-related policies. Coupled with the rising enthusiasm of Chinese consumers for 5G products, the sales of 5G smartphones in China It is expected to continue to grow. Abroad, Apple's 5G new model iPhone 12 series has been postponed, coupled with the continued supply of other suppliers, the sales of 5G smartphones in 2020 will also increase.
