Until the launch of the iPhone 12, it was the Seoul company that reigned supreme in the 5G smartphone market. Indeed, The Galaxy S20+ remained the best-selling 5G smartphone during the first half of 2020, according to data from Strategy Analytics.

However, many specialized companies have announced that this reign would end with the arrival of the iPhone 12, and they got it right.

For the analytics company, these good numbers can be explained by a strong desire on the part of consumers (mainly Americans) to equip themselves with 5G smartphones, all of this added to aggressive promotions from North American operators. Demand was also extremely strong in China and Japan, while the wide availability of the iPhone 12 in more than 140 countries played a significant role in this excellent start.
