The sale of smartphones falls by 6% compared to 2017

Last night Apple announced its fiscal results for the fourth quarter of 2018 and we know that the company has sold 46.9 million units of iPhone .

The numbers of sales of the iPhone and the rest of Apple's mobile devices have not been as high as expected, although they have grown 0.5% over last year, and the company has decided not to publish its iPhone sales figures , Mac and iPad from now on so as not to scare your investors.

And now IDC has come out with a market analysis in which they claim that the sale of smartphones has fallen by 6% compared to the same quarter last year.

Sales fall and Samsung collapses
Apple is not the only company that has been affected by the drop in the sale of smartphones. Samsung has also been hit hard by the low numbers of the mobile phone market. The South Korean firm has lost 13.4% of its sales , according to International Data Corporation (IDC). Despite having achieved a 20.3% market share in the third quarter of this year, their numbers have fallen.

Smartphone manufacturers have sold a total of 355.2 million units during the third quarter of 2018. It is the fourth consecutive quarter in which the global sale of mobile devices continues to plummet.

However, from IDC they remain firm when it comes to ensuring that the sale of mobile phones will grow in 2019.

On the other hand, in China, the most successful companies have been Huawei and Xiaomi, which have seen their figures grow by 32.9% and 21.2%, respectively, in the region.
