According to a new report from Counterpoint Research, Samsung has lost some of its Exynos market share in the US and also globally. The numbers show that Exynos smartphone chipsets hold just 4% of the global smartphone market share.
“Samsung Exynos slipped to the fifth position with a 4% share as Samsung is in the middle of rejigging its smartphone portfolio strategy of in-sourcing as well as outsourcing to Chinese ODMs. As a result, the share of MediaTek and Qualcomm has been growing across Samsung’s smartphone portfolio, from the mid-range 4G and 5G models manufactured by ODMs to the flagship ones,”

Apple’s market share dropped only 1% to 21% compared the same quarter in 2020. UNISOC continued with shipment growth and reached an 11% share in Q4 2021 up from just 4%.
