In the global market, the figure of '6.7 million' may not seem too large. However, Samsung announced at the Consumer Electronics Show IFA2019 '5G smartphone sales in 2019' was 5 million units, and sales forecast was '4 million units'.

Samsung claims that while 5G services have already begun in the United States and South Korea, Samsung's 5G-capable smartphones account for a significant percentage of the 5G market, saying that 53.9% of the existing 5G market is Samsung's. 5G-capable smartphones account for this. '

More than 30 models of 5G-compatible smartphones were sold in 2019, but it is expected that more 5G-compatible smartphones will appear in 2020.

Also, regarding the next generation SoC `` Snapdragon 865 '' which will be adopted by many Android smartphones appearing in 2020, Qualcomm, the developer, said, `` Manufacturers who want to adopt Snapdragon 865 in smartphones must support 5G '' Many high-end smartphones are expected to support 5G by 2020.

Samsung sold its flagship model 'Galaxy S10', which was sold in 2019, separately from the regular model and the 5G-compatible model (the 5G-compatible model is 'Galaxy S10 5G'). However, as mentioned above, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 is mandatory for 5G, so Galaxy S11 (tentative name) and Galaxy Note 11 (tentative name), which are flagship models in 2020, are all 5G compatible models, and the number of 5G compatible smartphones sold It is obvious that will increase.

According to the NPD survey, 73% of consumers are aware of 5G services, and it is clear that consumers are very willing to purchase 5G-compatible smartphones.
