The European smartphone market is expected to grow in single digits in 2024, driven by a refresh cycle of devices bought during the pandemic. Canalys analysts said that vendors need to adopt a holistic approach that emphasizes innovation, reliability, logistics, compliance, and branding to stand out.

They also said that AI integration in smartphones will be a key feature for long-term competitiveness and that vendors need to educate consumers on how to use on-device AI features to get the most value from their devices.
