Europe

Coming to Europe, monthly smartphone sales recovered for two months in a row, but failed to survive against the market downfall trend from 2021. Europe’s smartphone sales in October were 12.01 million units, down 20% from the same period in 2021.

China

China, which is known as the world’s biggest smartphone market recorded 20.42 million units of shipment in October 2022, which is 4% less than in September and 15% less than in October 2021. Consumers skipped purchasing phones in October due to the 11/11 Singles’ Day shopping festival.

iPhone 14 Series

In two months of launch, Apple shipped 26.09 million units of iPhone 14 series devices, globally. The sales figure is not quite high compared to the iPhone 13 series but helped the company to challenge Samsung’s dominance in the global market.

It’s worth noting that the iPhone 14 Pro line accounted for 70% of 18.14 million units shipped. iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro max ranked first and second in global sales in October. The sales portion of super-premium phones over $800, led by the high-end iPhone 14 reached the highest ever point.

Google Pixel 8 Pro 7 OS updates

Samsung may have made Google its biggest rival in the smartphone market. Previously, Samsung considered replacing Google with Microsoft’s Bing as the default search engine on Galaxy devices. This attempt by Samsung may have triggered Google to seek Pixel boost for Android and Search.

According to a report, Google managed to achieve a milestone of selling 10 million Pixel devices in 2023. The company sets an ambitious target to exceed 10 million Pixel sales target this year as well. There are multiple motives for Google apart from expanding the smartphone business.
