The main reasons for the growth of high-end mobile phones against the trend include that although the overall global economy was sluggish last year, wealthy consumers were obviously less affected, and as mobile phones are more important in daily life, consumers are more inclined to buy High-end mobile phones, and then there is an increasing demand for high-end mobile phones in emerging countries.

The biggest beneficiary is Apple's iPhone. Apple's market share of high-end mobile phones has reached a new high of 75%. The report also pointed out that if the supply of the iPhone 14 Pro series was not ideal last year, Apple's growth may be slow higher.


From this point of view, the Android camp only accounts for 25% of the high-end mobile phone market, with Samsung the highest, but only 16% in the world. The two brands of Honor and Honor are showing growth.
