High-end devices accounted for 29% of Samsung’s smartphone sales in Q1 2017


Last updated: March 27th, 2017 at 09:26 UTC+02:00

It’s been revealed that high-end smartphones accounted for 29 percent of Samsung’s combined handset sales in the first quarter of 2017; marking the first time the figure has dropped below 30 percent.

As noted by The Investor, the portion of top-of-the-range devices once reached 75 percent during the second quarter of 2013, when the Galaxy S4 hit the shelves. It gradually declined afterwards, however.

With the release of the much-anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus right around the corner, it’s more than likely the figure will creep back up during the second and third quarter of this year.
