Apple Tipped To Capture Top 5G Smartphone Spot In 2020
Apple’s entry into the 5G race in Q3 of 2020 will catapult the iPhone maker to top position, ahead of Samsung and Huawei, according to market research outfit Strategy Analytics.
Strategy Analytics predicts that Apple will capture a dominant share in the emerging smartphone technology segment next year.
The research firm said it may seem counter-intuitive that Apple will be able to pass current 5G market leaders Samsung and Huawei, since Apple currently has no 5G phones in the market.
“But with three new 5G models coming next year, Apple merely needs to match its current upgrade rates for newly introduced iPhone models to take the lead next year,” said Strategy Analytics director Ken Hyes.
The report says Huawei and Apple will dominate sales in China and the US, the two largest 5G markets, in 2020.
