The Ultra model topped the charts, followed by the base Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+, each holding 16.8% of the global GenAI-phone sales.

Dominance in a Growing Market

AI-enabled smartphones made up 6% of global sales in Q1 2024, a significant increase from 1.3% in Q4 2023. This surge is largely attributed to Samsung’s innovative Galaxy AI features, including Circle to Search, Live Translate, and Generative Wallpapers.

Competitors and Future Trends

Other brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, OnePlus, Honor, and Google also offer GenAI-capable phones. Google’s Pixel 8 Pro secured the 10th spot in Q1 sales. Market analysts predict the GenAI segment will grow, contributing 11% to the global phone market by the end of 2024​​.

What’s Next?

Apple is expected to enter the GenAI smartphone arena with its iPhone 16 series later this year, potentially shaking up the market. However, Samsung’s strong performance and upcoming releases, including the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6, suggest it will remain a dominant player​​.

Will Apple manage to dethrone Samsung in the GenAI smartphone market, or will Samsung’s innovative features keep it at the top?
