When there is less and less left to launch the Samsung Galaxy S23, a new report published by the company Counterpoint Research takes stock of the feedback obtained from the S22 series.
According to what was stated, the devices in the lineup would have reported sales below expectations ed they would have missed the initial targets by nearly 30 million units, a not insignificant number. The researchers note that the main reason for these disappointing sales would be to be found in the decline in interest in classic flagship smartphones in favor of foldables.
However, even the Galaxy Z Flip 4 would not have reported exciting data, and the market share would be less than 10% in the US, Canada, Japan or China. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 from the year before performed better, but the hope is that the long-talked about Galaxy Z Flip 5 manages to improve the situation.
Counterpoint also explains that in the current fiscal year, the average selling price of the entire range has increased by just 2%, while Apple has reported a 7% increase and a +10% in sales compared to the same period last year. year. Samsung’s revenue was also down about 4% and its year-on-year market share was down 0.2%, which is sure to give the manufacturer pause ahead of the S23’s scheduled February launch.
