Gartner: 2020 will see more smartphone sales, 5G to grow immensely by 2022

Ivan, 21 January 2020

Gartner forecasts that smartphone shipments will see their first increase in a while in 2020. The numbers promise a 1.7% growth in phone shipments in 2020 compared to 2019, which saw a 2% decline over 2018.

Gartner expects the growth to come mainly from Greater China and emerging markets in Asia/Pacific.

The 5G market is expected to account for 12% of all smartphone shipments in 2020 but as the prices of 5G phones decrease and adoption increases, Gartner projects that 5G phones will account for 43% of all phone shipments by 2022.

Despite the positive outlook, Gartner projects that smartphone shipments will see a decline over the next two years, expecting a drop of nearly 20 million units in 2022 compared to 2020.

Mate 30 pro, is the best mobile phone in the world, right now,

Yeah, if you have the money to spend $ 1,000 that is. Usually Business people/Doctors/Engineers or IT employees with fat salaries have this potential.
