Recently, Strategy Analytics, one of the top market research organizations, released a 5G smartphone sales report for the third quarter of 2021. The report shows that Chinese smartphones account for approximately 42% of 5G smartphone deployments in Central and Eastern Europe, with an annual growth rate of 5,700%.
During the same period, the sales of major brands such as Samsung, Apple, Realme, OnePlus, and Xiaomi were the world’s leading Android 5G retailer in Q3 2021, and the world’s leading 5G smartphone retailer in Central and Eastern Europe.
Last year, Xiaomi’s exports of 5G smartphones increased exponentially, surpassing Apple and Samsung, becoming the top 5G smartphones in the region. Samsung ranked third with its affordable 5G smartphones, accounting for 11.5% of 5G smartphones shipped in the region, up from 34.3% in the previous quarter.
According to Yiwen Wu, a senior analyst at Strategy Analytics, Xiaomi is expected to continue to lead Eastern Europe and Eastern Europe throughout 2021, and continue to be a leader in 5G smartphone deployment by 2022. “Xiaomi is making a profit in the absence of Huawei, as well as its high-end portfolio of 5G smartphones such as the Redmi Note 9T 5G and Mi 11 5G.
Apple ranked second in the 5G smartphone market in Central and Eastern Europe in the third quarter of 2021, and its supply of 5G smartphones accounted for only one-third of it. Apple expects its iPhone 13 list to be stable in the fourth quarter, but higher prices will limit its access to the region.
Realme and OnePlus merged the top 5 5G smartphone retailers in Eastern Europe and Eastern Europe, and their shares in 5G smartphone deployment were 7.2% and 2.5%, respectively. When Realme gained a foothold last year, Xiaomi accounted for the majority of smartphone shipments, and Apple accounted for a quarter of the market.
