Smartphone sales in the third quarter of 2021 decreased by 6.8%

Experts from the analytical company Gartner have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in the smartphone market. According to their calculations, sales of smartphones compared to the same period in 2020 decreased by 6.8%. Analysts blame the drop in sales on component shortages that have disrupted delivery schedules for finished products. They clarify that sales of high-end models have continued to rise.

In total, 342.3 million smartphones were shipped during the reporting period. Most of all – 69 million devices – were shipped by Samsung. However, a year ago, the South Korean giant sold almost 81 million smartphones, so its share fell from 22.1% to 20.2% over the year.

In second place is Apple. It was able to increase sales from 40.6 to 48.5 million units, so its share increased over the year from 11.1% to 14.2%.

The third place is taken by Xiaomi. During the quarter, it shipped almost the same number of devices as a year ago, but due to the reduction in the market, its share increased from 12.1% to 13.0%.

The top five also include Vivo and Oppo, which hold 10.5% and 9.8% of the market, respectively. A year ago, they accounted for 8.1% of all sales.

Considering that the iPhone 13 Pro Max easily put any flagship of last year on the shoulder blades, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is unlikely to disappoint anyone with its autonomy.

If you look at the results in more detail, then there is some noticeable difference just in points for autonomy: 151 points for the new model versus 156 points for the previous model. In more familiar terms, this is 2 days 17 hours and 2 days 20 hours of work in the source test. At the same time, the devices are charged almost identically.

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

It seems that despite the fact that the line of smartphones Pixel 7 is not very different from its predecessors, Google believes that they will sell very well.

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

The search giant has reportedly ordered 8 million new-generation devices and expects to double sales of new models relative to the Pixel 6 line.

At the same time, we recall that just the other day we learned that in six years Google has sold only 27.6 million Pixel smartphones. That is, the company intends to sell almost 30% of the total number of smartphones sold over six years only for older Pixel 7 devices.

It is also reported that the company has ordered 4 million lower class models, i.e. Pixel 7a models. In total, it turns out 12 million smartphones per year, or almost 45% of the total number of smartphones sold in six years.

We’ll find out how Google’s forecasts come true in about a year, but we can recall that at one time the models of the Pixel 6 line showed a multiple increase in sales relative to their predecessors.

However, the situation is not yet completely clear. Initially, the information was shared by a German thematic resource, and then it was repeated by many others. But the fact is that all models of the P50 line really disappeared from the German Huawei website, however, they are on the Huawei websites of some other European regions.

There are no official comments from Huawei itself, and therefore it is impossible to form a final picture. Perhaps Huawei has begun the process of withdrawing flagship devices from the global market, but it’s just that the changes have not yet been introduced on all regional sites.
