The global 5G smartphone market has been segmented on the basis of sales channel, named as offline and online. The offline segment is the fastest growing market, owing to growing availability of a huge number and variety of outlets including retailer outlets, hypermarkets, mobile stores, and brand stores, expanding urbanization, growing usage of mobile devices and accelerating economic growth.
