This IDC study provides the outlook on the Japan smartphone market, particularly on 5G-ready smartphones shipment in Japan. "The 5G-ready smartphone market is expected to expand rapidly as prices fall. However, since this is not based on actual user needs for broadband and low latency, it is urgent to convince users of the benefits. If the changes brought by the high functionality lead to a qualitative drop in user experience, such as for larger phones, it may lead to user disappointment and halting the innovations that come together with the expansion of use cases. Therefore, stakeholders should seriously and concretely examine the 5G utility value this year," says Akira Sugawara, senior market analyst, PC, Mobile Devices, and Client Solutions, IDC Japan.
