The effect of the coronavirus pandemic will see smartphone sales fall to their lowest levels in a decade, according to a new study.
Research group CCS Insight believes 1.26 billion phones will be sold this year, down from 1.41 billion in 2019 and the worst performance since 2010.
That’s a 13% fall in sales throughout the year, while the current quarter of the year will see sales fall by 29%.
Those worst sales in a decade predictions are particularly alarming considering in 2010/11, smartphone sales weren’t the be-all-end-all, with many folks still relying on their feature phones at that point in time.
However while the current predicament for the smartphone market is grim at best, the doom and gloom won’t last forever, according to the analysts.
