Our Country Share Tracker (CST) service just published the report, LTE / LTE-A Handsets Vendor Share by Country for Q4 2018, and wants to highlight some noteworthy trends identified from the report.

- USA, Japan and South Korea, all three countries, recorded more than 80% penetration in terms of LTE-Advanced handset shipments as of Q4 2018. South Korea was no.1.
- China and India are seeing the increasing percentage of LTE-Advanced handsets every quarter. Two countries achieved the record-high LTE-Advanced handset shipment penetration in the final quarter of 2018.

We will also be planning to track 5G handset shipment by vendor by country from around Q2 2019.
