Samsung Electronics today announced that in 2019, the company sold 6.7 million 5G mobile phones worldwide, including Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G, etc., which was better than expected. Earlier at the 2019 International Consumer Electronics Show (IFA) in Berlin, Samsung said that the company had only sold 2 million 5G devices and expected to sell 4 million by the end of the year.
Samsung claims that as of November 2019, the company’s share of the global 5G smartphone market is 53.9%. However, for Samsung, 2020 is the year that really tests the company.
Unlike most mobile phones in 2019 that do not support 5G, this year Qualcomm ’s flagship Snapdragon 865 processor will force Android flagships to support 5G, which will significantly increase the number of 5G mobile phones, and Samsung will face greater competition.
