Transsion's dominance in MEA was underscored by its impressive year-over-year growth in Q4 2023, surpassing competitors like Samsung and Xiaomi. Infinix, Tecno, and iTel, all under the Transsion umbrella, experienced significant growth, with Infinix leading the pack with a staggering year-over-year increase. Despite individual brand performances, when ungrouped, Samsung retained its lead in the region, while Apple and Realme also made notable strides, fueled by strong sales in Middle Eastern countries.

Looking ahead, the MEA smartphone market is expected to continue its growth trajectory, albeit at a more moderate pace, driven by ongoing transitions from feature phones to smartphones in Africa and the gradual shift from 4G to 5G technology. Brands like Honor, Motorola, and Huawei are poised for further expansion, with aggressive strategies and innovative offerings targeting different segments of the market, promising an exciting landscape for smartphone enthusiasts in the region.
