Jusy Hong, market research director at Omdia Mobile Device, said, “Although global smartphones were affected by the spread of the CORONAVIRUS Delta mutant strain and component shortage in the first half of the year, shipments grew year-on-year in the second quarter. However, shipments are expected to turn negative year-on-year in the third quarter due to continued supply shortages and reduced demand.”
