Worldwide smartphone sales fell 5.4% in the fourth quarter of 2020, according to a new Gartner report. Sales for the year 2020 were down 12.5 percent due to the Corona. Apple topped the list with 20.8 percent of smartphone sales in the fourth quarter. According to Gartner, the Apple 12 Series 5G iPhone, which was launched on October 23 in our country, sold the most in the fourth quarter. South Korean electronics giant Samsung came in second with 16.2 percent market share. China’s Xiaomi, Oppo and Huawei finished third, fourth and fifth respectively.
“Sales in the global market slowed somewhat in the fourth quarter of 2020 with the advent of 5G smartphones and lower-to-mid-tier smartphones,” said Anshul Gupta, Gartner’s senior research director. Consumers are wary of their costs due to Corona. Newly launched 5G smartphones and pro-camera features have impressed some consumers. Although Apple topped the fourth quarter, Samsung topped overall sales by 2020. Samsung recorded a 14.6 percent decline in 2020 compared to last year. The decline in global smartphone sales has also affected India. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), mobile exports in India are expected to fall by 2% in 2020 due to the Corona. This is the first decline in mobile sales in India since 2009.
