Samsung leads in 5G smartphones in North America, but Apple looms

by Ken Hyers | Jun 25, 2020

5G smartphones accounted for more than 1 in 10 smartphones shipped in North America in Q1 2020. A single vendor, Samsung, accounted for the vast majority of all smartphones shipped in the region.

The USA is the major consumer of 5G smartphones in the region, accounting for nearly all 5G smartphones shipped to the region. 

Apple will not begin shipping 5G smartphones until Q4 2020, but when it does it will have a major impact on the 5G market in North America. Will Apple be able to dethrone Samsung in 5G smartphones in the USA and Canada? 

The report, North American 5G Smartphones Forecast by Country by Quarter to Q4 2021 tracks 5G smartphone shipments by vendor by quarter and forecasts shipments to these countries through the end of 2021.  Clients of Strategy Analytics' Device Technology research practice can access the research here.
