Market Snapshot analyzes consumer research on attitudes on data sharing and personal experiences with COVID-19

Higher income households and those with higher levels of education are also more likely than lower income households and those with lower educational attainment to share their data.

“As COVID-19 continues to spread, more people will know someone who has contracted COVID-19, which will likely increase their willingness to share smartphone data,” said Jennifer Kent, Senior Director, Parks Associates. “Already 93% of US broadband households report lifestyle changes to limit the spread of the disease, so smartphone data in aid of contact tracing gives consumers an opportunity to take an active role in combating the virus.”

Smartphone apps processor revenue surges in quarter two

The global smartphone applications processor (AP) market once again defied the COVID-19 pandemic and grew 20% in revenue terms to $5.8 billion in quarter two (Q2) of 2020, according to Strategy Analytics’ Handset Component Technologies (HCT) service report.

The research group says that Qualcomm, HiSilicon, Apple, MediaTek, and Samsung LSI captured the top-five revenue share spots in the global smartphone applications processor (AP) market in the quarter. Qualcomm maintained its lead of the smartphone AP market with a 32% revenue share, followed by HiSilicon with 22% and Apple with 19%.

Strategy Analytics estimates that smartphone AP shipments declined 16 percent year-on-year in Q2 2020, driven by COVID-19-led weakness. However, increased mix of higher-priced 5G APs more than offset this weakness and helped the AP market to register 20 percent year-on-year revenue growth.

Smartphone APs with on-device artificial intelligence (AI) registered strong growth even as the total market declined and accounted

As someone who’s attended so many launch events that he’s lost track of how many, I can tell you that they’re usually messy, raucous occasions where you spend half your time travelling, and the other half jostling with other excited journalists, vloggers, and fans for a chance to get your hands on the shiny new product in question for a precious few minutes.

Sure, the excitement is sometimes infectious and palpable, and there’s something to be said about experiencing a device first hand in a crowded experience zone, and you do get freebies. But, the whole experience can also, at times, be a lot less fun than you would be led to

Analysts Predict Apple’s iPhone 12 to Outperform Global Smartphone Market in 2020 with Significant Upgrade Cycle in Q4

 

Apple is set to announce its new line-up of iPhones later today. This will mark a significant moment in the rollout of 5G and will be an opportunity for Apple to have a large upgrade cycle.

 

Counterpoint’s Research Director Tom Kang: “Apple has done a great job outperforming the global smartphone market. During the COVID-19 low point in Q2 2020, Apple was helped by the timely launch of the iPhone SE, which created a new, low price point for iPhones at $399. It helped Apple get through the worst months of COVID-19 and its lockdown periods.

 

In addition, the iPhone 11 has proved to have great longevity, still selling over one million devices per week on the brink of a refresh.

 

The SE and iPhone 11 helped maintain momentum through Q3 as the general market remained negative.”
