Global smartphone shipments up 28% in Q1, Samsung regains market lead

Thursday 29 April 2021 | 11:00 CET | News
The global smartphone market climbed 28.1 percent year on year to reach total shipments of 351.1 million units in the first quarter of 2021, according to preliminary data from Omdia. The result consolidates the smartphone market's recent recovery after it posted its first annual growth since Q3 2019 in the final quarter of 2020 but the researcher said 2021 is set to be a year of transition with Huawei's role continuing to change, LG exiting the market and a component shortage affecting sales.
