Unleash the Power of Innovation: A Thriving Force in the Global Smartphone Market

TECNO, a leading brand in the Transsion conglomerate, has achieved remarkable growth in the smartphone industry. According to the latest data from Counterpoint’s Market Monitor service, TECNO’s smartphone shipments surged by a staggering 62% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2023. This growth has solidified Transsion’s overall performance, with a 36% year-on-year increase in smartphone shipments for the same quarter.

Capturing 4% of the global smartphone market in Q3 2023, TECNO has secured its position as the world’s 9th largest smartphone brand. In just three years, TECNO’s market share has tripled, propelling its parent company, Transsion, into the top 5 smartphone Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

TECNO’s strategic launch of two foldable devices has significantly boosted its global image, paving the way for expansion beyond its African stronghold. The brand’s differentiation strategy revolves around offering devices with exceptional specifications, unique designs, impressive displays, robust batteries, and comprehensive camera capabilities at competitive price points.

Moreover, TECNO’s shipment volume has surged, accompanied by an expansion in the sale of higher-value devices, particularly in the high-end CAMON series and premium PHANTOM series. The PHANTOM series reflects the brand’s efforts to resonate with consumers outside Africa, signaling its mainstream presence in the global smartphone industry.

Furthermore, TECNO’s foray into foldable smartphones with the launch of the PHANTOM V Fold at MWC 2023 has propelled the brand to the 9th spot globally for cumulative foldable smartphone sales. The brand’s successful transition to competitively-priced flagship offerings instills market confidence in its future flagship devices, exemplified by the recently launched PHANTOM V Flip.

Looking ahead, the growth trajectory appears promising for TECNO and Transsion, driven by urbanization, rapid connectivity infrastructure development, feature phone to smartphone migration, cost-efficient components, and the proliferation of digital services. These factors collectively suggest a favorable long-term outlook, setting the stage for sustained growth and innovation in the ever-evolving smartphone industry.
