The Samsung Note20 Ultra is the top selling 5G phone for September but Huawei has larger share of the top 10
The Galaxy S20 Plus held the top spot earlier in the year at around 9% share, but the field has become increasingly competitive as 5G devices start to flood the market. Samsung’s devices in the top 10 have a combined 5G market share of 11.9%, and the Galaxy Note20 Ultra leads that with a 5% share.
However, Huawei/Honor’s devices from the top 10 make up a total of 15.4% of the 5G market, despite having restricted market access and no access to the Google Play Store. No doubt this figure is led by their strong presence in their Chinese home market, but their phones are still available on store shelves in large economic regions like Europe and Asia/Pacific.
BBK rounds out the remainder of the top 10 devices with a combined share of 9.4%, made up of 5.8% from Oppo and 3.6% from Vivo. While we’ve combined them here due to their common ownership, the two brands do operate independently of each other and compete for sales.
Sales statistics tend to lag behind by a few months, but when November and December stats are released early next year we should see whether Apple gets more than one iPhone 12 model into the top 10 5G devices list.
