The smartphone market suffered terribly in the first quarter of 2020 at the hands of COVID-19 and the April-June quarter was even worse. Despite that, Apple shipped a record number of iPhones in the United States.
The iPhone 11 and iPhone SE were very popular
Market data gathered by Canalys shows that smartphone vendors shipped 31.9 million smartphones in the United States during the second quarter. That number is down 5% year-on-year from the 33.4 million devices shipped in Q2 2019.
Samsung remained stable, but the Galaxy S20 didn’t help
Following in second place was Samsung with shipments of 7.4 million units and an impressive 23.2% share of the US smartphone market. The company’s shipment total remains unchanged from a year ago and its share has grown by 0.9%, but not everything is positive.
LG and Motorola followed with no sign of Google or OnePlus
Rounding out the top three smartphone manufacturers was LG. The South Korean brand shipped 3.5 million devices and accounted for 11% of the market, down from the 4.3 million and 13% it recorded a year earlier.
The remaining smartphone manufacturers, which include the likes of Google and OnePlus, only accounted for a combined 2.4 million shipments.
