According to a report released by market research firm Strategy Analytics, in the third quarter of this year, Samsung’s share of the U.S. smartphone market was 33.7%, an increase of 6.7% over the same period last year; Apple’s market share was 30.2%. Second; LG Electronics ranked third with a market share of 14.7%. This is the second time Samsung has taken the top spot in the U.S. smartphone market since the second quarter of 2017.
The report noted that Samsung’s strong performance in mid-range and budget smartphones, coupled with the launch of flagship devices such as the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Fold2, has resulted in a significant increase in Samsung’s market share in the United States. In addition, the delayed launch of Apple’s iPhone 12 series smartphones may also benefit Samsung.
In the global smartphone market, Samsung still ranks first with a market share of 21.9%, followed by Huawei with a market share of 14.1%, followed by Xiaomi with a market share of 12.7%. Apple’s market share is 11.9%, ranking fourth.
