"According to The NPD Group’s Mobile Phone Tracking service, 5G smartphone sales in the U.S. saw strong growth from the first half of the year to the second driven by the introduction of new products from Samsung, LG, and OnePlus, as well as an increasing number of markets with 5G coverage," says NPD.

"In fact," said NPD, "from 1H 2019 to 2H 2019 the number of 5G devices was up by nearly 9x."

The NPD predicts that, as the prices of 5G smartphones continue to drop, their sales will increase and begin a new cycle of phone upgrades. Nearly all Americans (89%, according to NPD) are aware of 5G smartphones and more than half are interested in purchasing one.

Smartphone Shoppers are 62% more likely than other consumers to find ads on their mobile apps useful to them, according to AudienceSCAN research.
