Smartphone market may recover in Q4
One reason why the smartphone market has not declined by more than 9 percent compared to the previous year is noted as the fact that Samsung and several other OEMs have offered various deals and discounts in the last few quarters. Declining demand due to economic difficulties has led brands such as Samsung and Apple to offer more adequate opportunities to consumers, while being cautious with less price increases.
This trend may continue for the rest of the year, especially as the year-end sales period approaches. Market watchers say consumers who refrain from buying new phones this year will have big savings opportunities on smartphones and bundles during Q4 sales. Still, Q4 demand is expected to be “slow but stable”.
