According to U.S. market research firm Strategy Analytics, the sales of UHD mobile phones would reach 25.8 million units next year. UHD resolution quality is about four times higher than that of full HD, thereby being called as 4K (resolution 3840 x 2160).
Strategy Analytics predicted that UHD mobile phones will be sold 9.4 million units in the Asia-Pacific region, 7.2 million units in North America, and 5.4 million units in Europe. The sales of UHD mobile phones will likely to expand up to 100 million units in 2017 and more than 2 million units in 2018.
Previously, Strategy Analytics had predicted that the world’s mobile phone sales would reach 1.9 billion units next year. In other words, UHD mobile phones would account for 1.4 percent in the world’s total mobile phone sales.
