Number of Smart Phone User in Bangladesh

The number of smartphone users is increasing rapidly in Bangladesh. According to the latest reports, there are 106,000,000 active mobile phone subscribers in Bangladesh, and roughly 95% of them are prepaid connection users. Nowadays postpaid users are increasing in a rapid way.

However, there is no official statistic for smartphone users. The proliferation of local, low-cost smartphones has changed the handset user dynamics over the last few years. Whereas Nokia had 80% market share even a few years ago, nowadays most new handset sales are going to Symphony, a local brand that gets handsets made and branded in China; closely followed by Samsung, Maximus, Micromax, Walton (another local brand) and a few other minor players.

 Apple and Nokia are here, but their contribution is very low. Demand for Smartphones in DhakaOthers- 20%Walton-13%Samsung-14%Symphony-53% As a rough estimate, we can assume that there are around 1 million smartphone users in Bangladesh.
