Phones aren’t selling well this year says Qualcomm, so Black Friday could be the time to buy

You might think that coming out of a pandemic with people out and about once again would push the demand for smartphones to climb, but it seems the opposite is true, as sales could be down 10% or more this year.

That’s according to Qualcomm, which in its latest earnings release – as spotted by The Verge (opens in new tab) – predicted that there could be a “low double-digit percentage decline” in handset volume this year, compared to last year. That’s a bigger drop than expected, with the company revising a previous estimate it made of a mid-single-digit percentage decline.
