Referring to data from Counterpoint, the source says that Nokia smartphones in the first quarter of this year found about 2 million buyers. This is more than a year earlier (1.7 million), but less than a quarter earlier (2.8 million).
At the same time, conventional push-button phones with the Nokia brand were sold for the quarter 11 million against 8.6 million a year earlier.
Such sales now place Nokia at # 11 on the list of the largest handset manufacturers and # 18 on the list of smartphone manufacturers. But in the market for conventional push-button phones Nokia occupies an honorable third place.
The best markets for Nokia in the last quarter were Africa and some European countries. At the same time, shipments of the brand’s phones in India fell 17% in annual terms and by 38.5% in quarterly terms.
In general, you can see that sales of Nokia smartphones have been gradually declining for about two years now.
