Apple continues to lead the 5G phone market in Q3 2021

The Apple iPhone 13 lineup.

Apple continues to lead in the global 5G smartphone market according to Strategy Analytics.

Its latest research data shows Apple in the lead while Samsung overtakes Oppo to be the second leading Android 5G phone vendor. Apple led the market in Q1 due to the huge demand in China and the iPhone 12 lineup.

Samsung managed to return to positive territory after three consecutive quarters of declining shipment. This is attributed to healthy demand across multiple markets for its phones. Xiaomi's global 5G shipments stalled, but the company managed to maintain its second position.

Looking ahead, the iPhone 13 lineup and the upcoming most affordable 5G iPhone should keep Apple in the lead although it will face fierce competition from Honor, which is the fastest growing Android 5G phone brand in Q3.
