5G smartphone sales in China up 63.5% in 2021

Sales of 5G-enabled smartphones are up 63.5% in 2021 compared to 2020, a Chinese government think-tank said today. Positive dynamics, according to experts, contributed to the decrease in the price of devices, which led to an increase in demand.

The China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) released a report on national messenger WeChat that 75.9% of 5G smartphones sold in China in 2021 were locally made, higher than the global average of 40.7%. The same report states that the main reason behind the growth in sales of 5G was the falling price, which averaged less than 1,000 yuan ($157.69).

The CAICT Academy also said that the number of subscribers of the top three mobile operators in China reached 1.64 billion at the end of November, of which 497 million were connected to fifth-generation networks, up 298 million from a year earlier. The three largest mobile operators in China are China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom. Recall that Qualcomm recently named China the world leader in 5G networks: 993,000 masts supporting fifth-generation networks are operational in the country.
