Driven by the upcoming release of the Galaxy S22 series and the great acceptance of its foldable phones, Samsung has increased its forecast of global market share for 2022 to 21.9%, reports South Korean The Elec. Not only that, but he expects that the remaining demand due to the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic will raise the global sales of mobile phones to 1.52 billion smartphones next year, of which the company itself plans to deliver more than 390 million.
Samsung’s sales forecasts predict a 33 million unit shipment for the Galaxy S22 series to be announced at the February Unpacked event. Most of them – 14 million – would belong to the most affordable member of the series, the Galaxy S22, while the S22 + and S22 Ultra should bring 8 million and 11 million sales units, respectively.
As usual, most of Samsung’s phones are expected to be in the mid-range A-series, with the Galaxy A23 and Galaxy A33 alone expected to sell around 267 million, while the A53 and A73 could bring in another 92 million units sold. and refill Samsung’s cash register to the top.
To defend itself against attacks by Chinese phone makers that won most of Huawei’s market share when the US imposed sanctions on them, Samsung will obviously be much more aggressive in marketing and new features, according to a report by South Korean tech portal Elec. Almost all A-series models that will appear next year will be waterproof, starting with the affordable Galaxy A33 model.
Samsung is expected to release the next Galaxy A33, A53, A53 5G and A73 5G, announced in the period from March to May, and all of them will have an IP68 waterproof certificate. The world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer will also simplify the processing technology it uses for the back of its phones, reducing the process to a single layer of coating and paint to simplify production.
Does that mean you should expect new colors in the A-series as the story goes for the Galaxy S22 line? It remains to be seen, and until then here is the schedule of announcements of Samsung Galaxy S22, S21 FE, A53 and A73 for 2022:
