iPhone 12 becomes the world’s best-selling 5G smartphone just two weeks after its release

Counterpoint Technology Market Research reports that the ranking of the world’s most popular fifth generation (5G) cellular smartphones has undergone a dramatic change. The reason is the announcement of Apple devices of the iPhone 12 family.


In September, the top-selling 5G smartphone was the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with a 5.0% share. In second place was Huawei P40 Pro with 4.5%, in third – Huawei Nova 7 with 4.3%

At the end of October, the iPhone 12 took the lead, capturing 16% of the global market at once. And this despite the fact that the smartphone was available on sale for only two weeks in October.

In second place was the iPhone 12 Pro with a share of 8%. Thus, the two named smartphones in October of the outgoing year occupied almost a quarter of the global 5G industry.

“Bronze” went to Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which received a share of 4%. All other models of smartphones with 5G support failed to show a result higher than 3%.

Most likely, by the end of November and December, the iPhone 12 smartphones will remain the leaders in the list of the best-selling 5G devices. And at the beginning of next year, changes may occur: on January 14, the presentation of the flagship devices Samsung Galaxy S21 is expected – all of them will receive support for 5G.
