Samsung manufactured over 300 million units in 2021, Galaxy S21 lineup underperformed

According to a report obtained by The Elec, Samsung missed its 2021 target for shipped smartphones, and there are several reasons why, one of them being the underperforming Galaxy S21 series.

Of all the 300 million units produced, Samsung made just under 240 million itself, while the production of the rest was handled by partners such as Wintech and Huaqin.

Of these, about 25 million were from the Galaxy S21 series, which is broadly in line with the S20 series, despite the tougher 2020. Not to mention the Galaxy S21 did not face any internal competition from the Note series as was none in 2021 Previous S generations totaled 35 to 40 million units.

However, we can not miss other factors that contribute to the missed goals, such as the COVID-19 crisis in Vietnam, where Samsung has a good deal of its production capacity, and the global chip shortage.

The majority of Samsung’s sales come from the mid-range Galaxy A and M series, and interestingly enough, the report says nothing about the Fold and Flip series, which according to other analyzes are doing well in their segment.

Looking ahead, Samsung plans to reach 334 million shipments this year with 285 million units produced internally, while the rest will be delegated to third-party factories.
