Apple and Samsung together controlled 77% of the smartphone market in the US during the third quarter this year, according to analyst firm Counterpoint Research.

The iPhone maker had a 42% market share while the South Korean tech giant controlled 35%. This was followed by Motorola’s 8%.

Counterpoint Research said the three companies procured enough stock of chips despite the global shortage which allowed them to expand their market share.

iPhone 13 sold well despite the chip shortage and this trend will continue throughout the remainder of the year, the analyst firm said.

Samsung also successfully launched its foldable smartphones during the third quarter and expanded sales of low-end 5G smartphones such as Galaxy A32 in collaboration with US carriers, Counterpoint said.

It was Motorola that filled the vacuum left by LG in the US following the South Korean company’s exit from smartphones in July, the analyst firm said.

Motorola launched mid- to low-tier phones and its factories were mostly in China, which means it was mostly unaffected by the factory shutdowns in Vietnam due to the pandemic.
