Digitimes Research estimates global smartphone shipments will not be able to break through the 1.5 billion unit mark by 2019 as 5G communication has yet to spur a wave of upgrades and the 4G smart feature phone ecosystem has yet to complete.
The coronavirus outbreak has disrupted production and weakened consumer confidence, with all ICT sectors bracing for major declines in shipments. Digitimes Research has conducted analyses on three mobile device sectors, namely notebooks, smartphones and tablets in the wake of the outbreak.
