Analyst: more Nokia phones were sold in Q4 than HTC, Sony, Google or OnePlus phones

Peter, 12 February 2018

Counterpoint has revised its numbers and now says HMD sold 4.4 million smartphones in Q4 of last year. Neil Shah, an analysts at the company, says the 1% market share puts it just outside the Top 10 – Nokia is in 11th place.

To put that in perspective, more Nokia-branded phones were sold in the last three months of 2017 than the following companies (individually):

  • HTC
  • Sony
  • Google
  • Alcatel
  • Lenovo
  • OnePlus
  • Gionee
  • Meizu
  • Coolpad
  • Asus

The brand is seeing a resurgence in some markets. Nokia smartphones were #3 in the UK for the quarter and in the Top 5 in Russia, Vietnam and most Middle Eastern markets. Not bad for a company that is essentially a year old at this point.

Nokia featurephone numbers were revised as well. The company took the top spot in Q4 with 20.7 million units sold and considering the total phone market (smart + feature phones), HMD is in 6th place (with a 5% share of the overall market).
