Samsung’s A51 is the best selling Android phone in the first quarter of 2020 according to data analytic firm, Strategy Analytics. Six million units of the budget phone shipped in the quarter worldwide.


This means that Samsung A51 took a 2% share of the market. The pricing could have also been a factor in its good outing. According to Strategy Analytics, the Android phone market is “increasingly dominated by more affordable models”. The A51 is retailed for about $400.


“As mobile operators have reduced subsidies in recent years, and many countries are now tumbling into post-virus recession, smartphone consumers globally are becoming increasingly price-sensitive and they are seeking out new Android models that deliver the biggest bang for their buck, Android is entering a post-premium era,” associate director at Strategy Analytics, Juha Winter said.

In what was a great outing for Samsung smartphones, the S20 Plus came third with a 1.7% share. This also makes it “the only super-premium model appearing in [the] top-six ranking,” according to Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston.


At the same time, 5G smartphone sales increased by 8% in the first quarter of 2020 from 1% in the last quarter of 2019.


Some 275.8 million smartphone units shipped globally in the first quarter of 2020. According to Strategy Analytics director Linda Sui, Android phones account for a whopping 86% of that amount.


The figure also represents an 11.7% year over year in the first quarter of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic must have, however, been a factor in the decline in this figure.
