Apple surpassed Samsung and became the brand that sold the most smartphones in the world during the last quarter of 2020. The Cupertino technology is thus returning to a position it did not occupy since 2016 thanks to the sale of 80 million iPhones.
According to Gartner data, iPhone sales were boosted by the launch of the iPhone 12 family, the brand’s first equipment with 5G capabilities.
Apple sold about 80 million iPhones
For analyst Anshul Gupta, 5G and the news in the area of image processing have led many users to upgrade this generation, with special emphasis on the fourth quarter of last year.
Apparently, neither the pandemic has influenced smartphone purchase decisions, as not even the greatest care in spending seems to have affected Apple’s equipment.
American technology sold 10 million more iPhones in the final quarter of 2020 than at the end of 2019, seeing its market share grow by almost 15%.
Samsung, on the other hand, suffered a 11.8% decrease in market share and sold 8 million fewer devices than in the last 3 months of 2019.
Apple expected to show record market value at the end of 2021
Apparently Apple will even have a market value of $ 3 trillion at the end of this year, with sales figures for the iPhone 12 at the center of this market capitalization.
The Cupertino smartphone family continues to benefit from a “super cycle” and to sell well above expectations.
If the current trajectory continues, Apple may even be able to sell more than 240 million iPhones, with a high probability of reaching the 250 million iPhones sold in 2021.
