Nine out of 10 5G smartphones sold in the United States in the first quarter of 2020 were the Galaxy S20 series from Samsung Electronics.

U.S. 5G phone shipments in the first quarter of 2020 stood at 3.4 million units, accounting for 12 percent of the total smartphone shipments in the United States, said market research firm Strategic Analytics (SA) on May 20 (local time).

Among them, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series stood out. The top three most popular 5G phones all belonged to the Galaxy S20 series.

The Galaxy S20 Plus topped the 5G phone sales rankings in the United States with a 40 percent share, followed by the Galaxy S20 Ultra with 30 percent and the Galaxy S20 with 24 percent.

Apple's first 5G iPhone to be released in the second half is expected to be the biggest threat to Samsung Electronics' market share expansion.
