Samsung is a proud smartphone manufacturer that has managed to sell millions of 5G smartphones in the year when 5G tech just debuted. The 6.7M 5G smartphone shipment figure has helped Samsung to mark its name in the pages of history that will be remembered forever.
In a press release, Samsung has announced that as of November 2019, it accounted for 53.9% of the global 5G smartphone market and led the industry by offering consumers five Galaxy 5G devices globally. Samsung hasn’t shared the individual number of units it sold but did say the big figure includes the Galaxy S10 5G, Note 10 5G, Note 10 Plus 5G, as well as the very new Galaxy A90 5G, and the Galaxy Fold 5G.
While Samsung is taking strides and has managed to gain a strong foothold in the fresh 5G market, Apple is yet to enter. The successful shipment number indicates Samsung is all set for a bigger game which is about to start in 2020. While announcing the sales figure, Samsung also presented its opinion on further expansion. The South Korean company is looking to expand the 5G portfolio even further so as to make the tech available to more and more users this year.
While sharing the total number of 5G smartphone sales numbers, Samsung also briefly talked about its first-ever 5G tablet and revealed it will come in the first quarter of 2020.
Samsung plans to innovate further with new advancements to change the way users "watch and interact with movies, TV, and sports, play games and talk with friends and family." We will get to see these tangible products or services as we move further into this year. So, let’s just stay connected and come back to know more.
