Global smartphone market grows just 1% in Q2

Thursday 28 July 2016 | 11:04 CET | News
Global smartphone shipments grew 1 percent annually to reach 340 million units in Q2, according to Strategy Analytics. Smartphone growth has slowed due to increasing penetration in major markets like China and uncertainty surrounding major political events such as the Brexit EU referendum result, the market researcher said. However, there are emerging signs that the global smartphone market has reached a bottom in the first half of 2016, and the growth outlook for the second half of this year is improving due to multiple big new product launches from Samsung, Apple and others, it said.
