Samsung Electronics today announced that the company sold 6.7 million 5G smartphones in 2019 making more numbers in sales as expected from the next-generation of mobile technology.
6.7 million devices may not sound a lot when it comes to smartphone sales in 2019 across that world but at the IFA 2019, the company had sold only 2 million 5G smartphones and expected that only 4 million devices will be sold by the end of 2019. Samsung currently has five 5G devices including the Galaxy S10 5G, Note10 5G, and Note10+ 5G, as well as the recently launched Galaxy A90 5G and Galaxy Fold 5G.
With more than expected sales Samsung also claims that as of November 2019 it led the sales in 5G smartphone sales with 53.9 percent global market share. 2020 will be the year of 5G and we can expect that almost every Samsung flagship or mid-range smartphone could be a 5G enabled device so we can expect that the S11 or Note 11 will not have a separate 5G variant.
Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 processor makes the support for 5G mandatory with every Android device that uses the processor as a separate antenna rather than a fully integrated solution.
