According to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation ( IDC ) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, smartphone vendors shipped a total of 385.9 million devices during the quarter. While the full year 2020 declined 5.9% compared to 2019, the progress toward market recovery has been impressive and IDC believes the momentum heading into 2021 will remain strong. “There are a lot of elements at play that are fueling the smartphone market recovery – pent-up demand, continued supply push on 5G, aggressive promotions, and the popularity of low to mid-priced phones,” said Nabila Popal, research director with IDC’s Worldwide Mobile Device Trackers. “Vendors also seem to be better prepared for the second lockdown, ensuring they have the right channel set up ready to fulfill orders and reach the end consumer. Lockdowns also have people spending less on areas like leisure, travel, and dining out – and smartphones are benefitting from this. In addition to all these factors, the fast recovery and resilience of the smartphone supply chain also has to be given some credit.” In terms of vendors, there was a clear shift among the Top 5. Apple delivered a phenomenal performance in 4Q20, returning to the number 1 position with 90.1 million devices shipped, driven by the success of the iPhone 12 series. This represents the highest shipment volume from a vendor in a single quarter and resulted in 23.4% market share and 22.2% year-over-year growth. Samsung moved to number 2 with 73.9 million device shipments and 19.1% market share. With the continued success of the A series and growth in nearly every region, Samsung saw year-over-year growth of 6.2%. Xiaomi finished the quarter in the third position with shipments of 43.3 million and 11.2% market share while OPPO was fourth with shipments of 33.8 million and 8.8% market share. Both companies successfully capitalized on declining Huawei shipments, growing 32.0% and 10.7% year over year respectively, by focusing on aggressive product portfolios and building partnerships. Huawei fell to the number 5 spot with shipments of 32.3 million and 8.4% market share. The company continues to suffer under the weight of U.S. sanctions and saw a dramatic year-over-year decline of 42.4%. “The recovery of both the smartphone market and its supply chain has been truly impressive and the year-end growth is testament to how far we’ve come,” said Ryan Reith, program vice president with IDC’s Worldwide Mobile Device Trackers. “The majority of the world is either in some form of lockdown or still waiting to return to normal day-to-day life, yet smartphone sales are rebounding as though nothing ever happened. This illustrates the importance of smartphones in everyone’s life and provides a strong foundation for market demand. As the world progresses towards a post-pandemic environment, IDC believes demand will grow and the market recovery will accelerate.” 19.1% TAGS 17.5% 112.4 29.1% 114.3 73.8 369.9 -8.3% 2020Q4 Shipment Volumes 4.3% 32.0% 8.3% 100.0% 189.0 Local NewsBusiness Top 5 Smartphone Companies, Worldwide Shipments, Market Share, and Year-Over-Year Growth, Calendar Year 2020 (shipments in millions of units) -5.9% Total 371.5 2019 Shipment Volumes 2019 Market Share Huawei Apple 206.1 20.6% 17.6% Pinterest 73.9 8.9% Xiaomi 8.8% 295.8 Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – January 27, 2021 56.2 147.8 8.6% 2019Q4 Market Share Apple 11.4% 1,372.6 OPPO -9.8% Vendor 2019Q4 Shipment Volumes -2.8% 69.5 Samsung Year-Over-Year Change Notes:Data are preliminary and subject to change.Company shipments are branded device shipments and exclude OEM sales for all vendors.The “Company” represents the current parent company (or holding company) for all brands owned and operated as a subsidiary.Figures represent new shipments only and exclude refurbished units. 11.2% -21.5% Source: IDC Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, Jan 28, 2021 14.6% 100.0% Pinterest 22.2% 43.3 2020 Market Share 1,292.2 8.4% Others 125.6 Huawei 28.8% 32.8 Others OPPO WhatsApp Year-Over-Year Change 2020 Shipment Volumes -42.4%

The superintendent said he loves seeing increased civic engagment, and hopes this trend will continue in years to come. Superintendent Jason Van Fossen told 12 News this is the first year all residents have had to vote on the budget by absentee ballot.Van Fossen said typically the district has 800-1000 people vote on its budget; already, more than four thousand ballots have been delivered. ENDWELL (WBNG) — The Maine-Endwell Central School District is embracing the changes the coronavirus pandemic has created. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order stating schools will be allowed to hold a second vote, as is typical, if their first budget is defeated. Previously, multiple districts told 12 News they were unsure if they would have to immediately adopt a contingency budget, which would result in large cuts. I asked @MECSDSpartans Superintendent @VanFossenJason today about civic engagement in the middle of this pandemic, and his answer below is well worth the listen. My full story tonight at 6 on @WBNG12News pic.twitter.com/HtvUci3lTg— Josh Rosenblatt (@JRosenblattTV) June 11, 2020 “Even if it means a defeated budget, if the people we talk, we have to follow what it is they say,” Van Fossen said Thursday. “If this process has created more interest, that’s fantastic, and I hope the residual effect is more people vote.”

Ray White Surfers Paradise Group’s chief executive Andrew Bell at auction.However, the results come despite less auctions being held this year compared to last.In the September 2018 quarter, 597 auctions were held across the Coast while 546 were held in the same period this year. MORE NEWS: House Rules champs sell winning home “The lift in clearance rates highlights a better fit between buyer and seller pricing expectations and some urgency creeping back into the market as a larger pool of buyers compete for a smaller than usual number of homes for sale,” he said.“There is a strong likelihood that advertised stock levels and the number of scheduled auctions will progressively rise as spring progresses and vendor confidence lifts on healthier housing market conditions.”The Coast’s September 2019 clearance rate was also higher than the June quarter’s (26.6 per cent) but the number of auctions held dropped from 571. The Coast wasn’t the only area to have a higher clearance rate in the September 2019 quarter. The numbers in all the capital cities except Adelaide as well as five regional markets improved.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa9 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoCoreLogic head of research Tim Lawless said the “remarkable lift” was a good sign.
