Taking into account the latest impact from the coronavirus epidemic, Digitimes Research has downgraded its 5G smartphone shipment forecast for the second quarter and full year 2020. It now sees 5G handset shipments in China down 26.6 percent to 22 million units for Q2, from its pre-epidemic forecast of 30 million units. Still, if the outbreak can be gradually contained starting from Q2, China will yet be the biggest market for 5G handset shipments this year.
