Worst smartphone sales crash ever predicted this year

Worldwide shipments of smartphones are set to shrink by 3.2%, according to the latest predictions from Gartner, Inc.

The forecast estimates total shipments of about 1.74 billion in 2019, down from 1.81 billion in 2018, making it the worst decline this category of devices has seen.
