CounterPoint: Half of all mid-range phones in Europe have 5G, Huawei left void

According to an analysis by CounterPoint of the mid-range phones market in Europe, Huawei left a void after the company began disappearing a year ago, due to the US blacklisting.

It is mainly other Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus, Realme and Vivo that have filled the void. Four of these are part of the giant BBK Electronics.

Counterpoint also writes that most of Huawei’s phones sold cost less than $ 250 (they use dollars and not euros, although the report refers to Europe). The source believes that there has been no direct replacement, but that more people are instead starting to buy smartphones in higher price ranges.

Growth in Europe over the past year has mainly taken place for smartphones with prices between 250-700 dollars. Manufacturers calling CounterPoint “new”, like Xiaomi, Oppo and OnePlus, account for a third of sales in that price range.

CounterPoint also mentions 5G: over half of all mid-range phones sold in Europe offered 5G in the first quarter of 2021. It can be compared to just one-fifth of Q3 2020 and none at all a year ago.
