Samsung overtakes Apple as world’s third-largest mobile processor maker


Sina Technology News Beijing March 23 evening news, according to foreign media reports, market research firm Counterpoint Research data shows that Samsung has surpassed Apple to become the third largest manufacturer in the global mobile processing market.

According to Counterpoint Research data, Samsung’s share of the global mobile processor market in 2019 was 14.1%, an increase of 2.2% over 2018, ranking third. Apple, which was squeezed into fourth place, had a market share of 13.1%, down 0.5% from 2018. The top two are Qualcomm and MediaTek, with a market share of 33.4% and 24.6%, respectively.

The report pointed out that Samsung’s market share improvement is due to its continuous increase in sales in North America and India. Ironically, consumers aren’t so happy with Samsung’s Exynos processors that the website is running a petition urging Samsung to stop using Exynos processors in its flagship Galaxy smartphones (outside the US). So far, nearly 20,000 people have signed the petition.

Currently, Qualcomm’s latest mobile processor is the Snapdragon 865, which is used in most Android flagship smartphones. Reports suggest that Qualcomm will update the Snapdragon 865 in the third quarter of this year and release the Snapdragon 865+. (Li Ming)
