In February, Samsung reclaims the top spot in global mobile sales

Samsung reclaims the top spot in global mobile sales in the month of February, Samsung Electronics, the South Korean behemoth, reclaimed the top spot in global smartphone sales.

What is known?

According to a survey from Strategy Analytics, the company has surpassed Apple, which placed first in Q4 2020 due to sales of the iPhone 12 series.

According to the survey, Samsung shipped 24 million smartphones in February 2021, accounting for 23.1 percent of the market share. Apple, on the other hand, sold 23 million units, accounting for a 22.2 percent market share.


Last month, Xiaomi was the third-largest smartphone seller, with an 11.5 percent global market share, led by Vivo and OPPO, with 10.6 percent and 8.5 percent global market shares, respectively. All three of these are Chinese brands with just a small footprint in the United States.

In January, Samsung had a 15.6 percent market share, while Apple had a 25.4 percent market share. When comparing year-over-year (YoY) numbers, Samsung’s smartphone shipments were 26% higher than last year and 13% higher than pre-pandemic peaks in February 2019.


The Galaxy S21 range, the South Korean company’s flagship Galaxy S-series smartphones, was unveiled in January this year, rather than the normal mid-February timeline. This has aided the company’s market share growth. Another significant effect is Huawei’s declining market share, which is competing in this segment as a result of many US sanctions.
