With 2017 just two weeks away we are taking a look back at all of the phones & smartphones that were released in Canada in 2016. Some of the more interesting things we found in the numbers were:
- A total of 36 phones or smartphones were released in Canada in 2016, which matches the number of phones that were released in 2015. This number is down from 2014 and 2013 release totals.
- For 2016, LG was the #1 phone manufacturer releasing 5 devices.
- Where fall is historically the most popular release period for smartphones, we see that the same number of devices were released between March to June (39% of total devices) as were released in September to November (39% of total devices).
- January, May, and December saw no phones released in 2016.
