As the coverage of 5G networks becomes wider and wider, sales and shipments of 5G smartphones are also increasing. Many institutions and companies have made predictions for the shipment of 5G smartphones in 2021. Recently, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) stated that in 2021, 5G smartphone shipments are expected to exceed 106 million units, increasing 530% from 2020.
Before, in January this year, Xu Jingquan, deputy general manager of the chip manufacturer MediaTek, said at the Dimensity series new product launch conference that in 2021, 5G smartphone shipments are expected to reach 500 million units, almost doubling compared with last year.
Later, at the end of June this year, some research institutes predicted that global 5G smartphone shipments would be 500 million to 530 million units, a year-on-year increase of 70%-80%.
Compared with previous forecasts, the Consumer Technology Association''s forecast for 5G smartphone shipments this year is relatively conservative.
