Worldwide Smartphone Market Shares, 2017: Revenue Growth from Ultra-Premium Devices

This IDC study provides an analysis of vendor performance in the worldwide smartphone market in 2017."Despite the slight negative unit growth in the worldwide smartphone market, 2017 represented the birth of the ultra-high-end smartphone," says Anthony Scarsella, research manager for IDC's Mobile Phones team. "Premium device offerings from a variety of vendors have been the main force driving double-digit revenue growth in 2017. For now, the days of the $650 flagship seem to be long gone as smartphones costing nearly $1,000 have somewhat become the go-to choice in most developed markets when selecting a flagship device."
