Sales of the iPhone 5 in Portugal, which started on 28 September, could help Apple consolidate its position in the country, according to IDC analyst Fernando Jeronimo. Despite the contraction of the overall Portuguese market, this high-end segment continues to grow, and IDC estimates that Apple could sell 60,000 iPhones in Portugal this quarter. IDC believes that Apple could grow by 20 percent in the last quarter, while the market will fall in the same proportion. IDC expects Samsung to remain market leader, as it has a wider portfolio. In 2012, the Portuguese market should sell a total 4.2 million mobile phones, down 19 percent on 2011. Smartphone are estimated to reach 1.6 million units, up 18 percent year-on-year. Apple should sell 172,000 units, up 52 percent.
