Apple with 51% of the global smartphone sales at the end of 2017
More than half of all smartphone sales revenue in the last quarter of 2017 went to Apple’s cash register, data from Morgan Stanley analyst showed.
In figures, this amounts to $61.14 billion and is record for the market. The US giant has reported 12% more iPhone sales than a quarter earlier, while sales of Android phones in China have dropped 17%, which is partly due to Apple’s big success.
The new sleek and quite expensive iPhone X has a 3% share in China with a tendency to increase it. Obviously, local consumers have no problem with the price, as compared to iPhone 8, it has a 1.36% share and iPhone 8 Plus – 2.63%.
Nevertheless, Morgan Stanley predicts that Chinese Android manufacturers will try to increase their share in the midrange price segment by dropping prices on their handsets. This will lead to weaker sales of old iPhone models such as iPhone 6.
Samsung remains second. The Korean manufacturer also raised its percentages from the previous year and is now taking 15.7% of smartphone revenue. Huawei’s third-moth is 7%.
