Samsung held the second position and managed to grow by 3% annually in the first quarter. It accounted for 30% of the market share in Australia. It was the highest held by it in the market in past seven quarters. Samsung’s Galaxy S 22 series and Foldables portfolio have been finding good traction in the Australian market.

OPPO was the third largest smartphone vendor in the Australian smartphone market and held 7% of the smartphone volumes in Q1 2022. It is the lowest share the vendor has held in over 10 quarters in a row now. The vendor has strong competition from other Chinese vendors.
