In the last quarter of 2022, global smartphone shipments amounted to 301.5 million of units, which, according to Omdia, represents a decrease of 15.4% compared to the previous year.

Usually the last quarter of the year sees the highest number of shipments, but this year the trend has changed, with a disappointing and marginal decline of 0.7% compared to the previous quarter.

In fact, most of the major manufacturers posted significant negative year-on-year growth, with shipments declining by double digits.

As usual in the fourth quarter of each year, following the launch of the iPhone 14, Apple recorded the largest number of shipments: 74 million.

And while that’s a significant increase in 41.6% Compared to the third quarter of 2022 it fails to hide the 13.3% drop compared to the previous year.

Despite this year-over-year decline in shipments, Apple’s market share increased year-over-year from 24% to 25%. Which allowed it to surpass Samsung and Xiaomi, at least in the quarterly ranking.

“Apple was confident in strong demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max and anticipated production peaking for these two models. However, the suspension of production at the Foxconn plant has put a damper on their plans,” says Jusy Hong, Senior Research Manager at Omdia.

In the table detailing the annual unit sales, Samsung continues to lead the positions with 256 million. Apple follows closely with 231 million, where the iPhone 12 and 13 lines continue to pull strongly. The jerk that pushed Xiaomi deflates to 152 million.

Oppo Group and vivo exchange fourth and fifth places, with 24 and 23 million respectively. The addition of the two brands amounts to 47 million. This figure is not helpful in reaching the top, even if it brings them closer to Apple’s 74 and Samsung’s 54.

Despite the good results obtained in Argentina, Motorola remains in ninth place with 11 million unitswithout changes compared to the previous quarter, but with a decrease of 10.4% compared to the previous year.

Its big rival is Huawei, which remains in tenth place despite a decline in shipments, registering 7.5 million units compared to 8.6 million in the previous quarter.

Samsung’s recorded final shipments in 2022 stood at 259 million, the most of any OEM, but still a 4.8 percent decrease from the 272 million recorded in 2021.
