The Research Report
According to the research report, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra was the world’s best-selling 5G smartphone in September 2020. The device occupies 5% of the market share of all 5G models. The Huawei P40 Pro 5G was the second in September and the best-selling 5G model in August. The third to tenth places are Huawei Nova 7, Samsung Galaxy S20+, Huawei P40, Vivo Y70s, OPPO Reno 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 20, Honor 30S, OPPO A72.
As you noticed, the Chinese manufacturers have the majority of the names in the list. Therefore, the seven models in the top ten were Chinese models, which is not surprising. Counterpoint Research stated that more than 60% of the global 5G market is located in China.
In January 2020, the top 10 5G smartphones are flagship models, being the 93% of the total global sales of 5G models. Many experts expect that with the arrival of a thousand Yuan 5G smartphone, this number will decrease.
Counterpoint Research also insisted that in comparison with the many flagship models, it is exciting to see OPPO and Vivo’s low-end and mid-range models in the top ten sales. In addition, Counterpoint Research also added that Apple launched the iPhone12 series in October, and a large wave of machine replacement will be launched in North America and Europe. Hence, Apple will play a more important role in the future. Thus, the top 10 list may be different in a few months.
Currently there are more than 200 5G models in the world. The attractiveness of 5G models to users is very important, especially from the 1Q 2020 to the 3Q 2020.
