In the fourth quarter of 2021, mid-range phones accounted for 59% of Samsung’s smartphone sales, Counterpoint Research reported.

Samsung Galaxy A-series phones accounted for the majority of its smartphone sales last year, according to a new report from Counterpoint Research, highlighting growing demand for the company’s mid-range offerings.
According to Counterpoint Research, throughout 2021, Galaxy A devices will account for 58% of Samsung’s smartphone sales. According to its global phone model sales tracker, 59% of Samsung devices sold in the fourth quarter of 2021 were Galaxy A models.
The mid-range lineup accounted for 56% of its sales in the first quarter, 60% in the second, and 57% in the third, indicating strong demand for many cheaper Samsung phones.
“The mid-range A-series has been a major player in the entire Samsung smartphone portfolio over the past few years,” said Liz Lee, a senior analyst at Counterpoint.
Liz Lee noted that mid-range devices will account for nearly two-thirds of all Samsung smartphone sales in 2021, including the Galaxy A31 and Galaxy A32 devices.
“These devices enjoy broad global appeal and perform well in different markets such as North America, Western and Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Middle East,” added Liz Lee.
The report is in line with an earlier report by the research firm that suggested the Galaxy A12 will be the world’s best-selling Android smartphone in 2021. That means the phone accounted for 2.0% of total smartphone sales last year.
