5G Android Phone Sales for February Revealed, Samsung Secures Top Spot

The rollout of 5G technology is now fully underway, and plenty of premium smartphone manufacturers have started incorporating this tech into their phones. The month of February turned out to be a profitable one for 5G smartphones that use the Android operating system, and a report just published by Counterpoint reveals all of the particulars of that month. February saw strong sales for 5G smartphones, indicating a high demand among consumers that are willing to pay the premium price point.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Samsung has turned out to be the biggest winner in this playing field with a total of 12% of all sales going to this brand. All of the top four selling smartphones in this category, with the 5G enabled Galaxy A52 topping the list with just under 3% of total sales, or 2.9% to be precise.

Coming in second was the Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G, suggesting that customers are eager to buy flagship phones that are compatible with 5G networks and Samsung is doing a good job of filling that need. The Galaxy S21 reached the third spot in terms of sales, followed by the Galaxy A32. The Galaxy A22 rounded off the top ten list with the number ten spot.

In spite of the fact that this is the case, Chinese companies have also been succeeding in the sales for these smartphones. Oppo’s Reno 7 received 1.92% of total smartphone sales. Huawei is also making a comeback with its Honor series, with the Honor 60 received 1.81% of 5G sales in February, and the X30 getting 1.51%.

Xiaomi’s Redmi K40 also performed well, representing a 1.57% of 5G smartphone sales in that month. However, it fell just short of Vivo, whose S12 smartphone edged out with 1.58% of total sales. Regardless, Samsung is showing almost total dominance of the smartphone market for 5G enabled phones, and the combined force of all major Chinese companies couldn’t put a dent in its rapidly rising monopoly which gives the Korean corporation a good outlook for 2022.
