Nokia may have already shipped more than 3 million Lumias in April. Adduplex data reveals one more high-end device!!


Adduplex’s latest data for the Month of April is out and we can see following devices posting % points increase in market share over Q4 (March),

Lumia 520- 4.4

Lumia 720- 1.7

Lumia 620- 1.1

Lumia 822-1

Lumia 505- 3

Which is about 11.2 % increase over March data (Shown below) for these devices. Including the skew of about 30% towards WP8 devices, this 11.2 % increase should be taken as 8.7%.


Now, assuming 3.5 million sold WP devices are not in active use now, total no. of active WP devices till Q1 2013 is about 25 million. For the sake of calculation, let us assume only 2 million devices were sold in April (conservative), then total no. of WP devices till April = 27 million.

Hence, net number of above listed devices sold in April = 27*8.7/100 = 2.35 million. Now if we add Lumia 920, Lumia 820 sales numbers which may easily be around 0.65 million worldwide, we get a figure close to 3 million new devices added in April only.

Keep in mind this figure is very realistic as we have already,

Considered 3.5 million devices sold are not active now.

Skew of 30% towards WP8 devices taken into account while doing calculations.

Other highlights of the latest Adduplex report are Lumia 920 decreasing in overall share from 14 to 13.1% due to impact of Lumia 520, 505 and 720, but still increasing its lead over Lumia 800 whose share shrieked to 11% from 14% in April (some skew in work here as well).

Also seems, two more high-end device with 1280×768 resolution are disclosed. One of them is earlier reported RM-910 and another one is RM-875. So we have now five high-end devices with WXGA resolution being tested by Nokia. Exciting times ahead :).

  • Nokia RM-910 – seen a few times in Vietnam. WXGA screen;
  • Nokia RM-875 – seen mostly in Finland, but some other places too. WXGA screen

We will bring more of Adduplex report, when it is finally published on their blog tomorrow!!

Thanks dojobi for the Tip. Cheers!!

    It seems that Gared did not consider the 822 as WP8. Following his own calculations, and assuming the same 1 million devices sold in April, but including also the 822, the outcome would be: 6,7million Lumias which stand for 28,5% + 4% (Lumia 822)= 32,5%, then 6,1% would stand for 1,26 million Lumias 520 and 720 sold in April.
    It would be nice to have the split between WP7 Lumias and WP8 Lumias sold in Q4 2012 to make a better calculation!

  2. Wait for the dramatic appearance of the Lumia 521 next month! 😉

    Again your estimations too positive
    Enter a saturn or media markt store in Stuttgart or karlsruhe.
    If you look at the stand of nokia –> no people and the store full of unsold devices
    Samsung and others –> full of people. Telekom shop offers 820 –> as per my friend working there –> only one device sold on last saturday …

    • Even after removing 30% in bias and 3.5 million as inactive in installed base, you think it is too positive, then it is your wish. Nokia themselves have predicted more than 27% growth over Q1. So assuming a 30% growth we get a figure of 7.2 million for Q2. So, in April it should be minimum 2.5 million as Lumia 520 and 720 are launched in April.

    • You are well aware that your personal experience is extremely unlikely to represent an entire world market right?

    Can somebody tell me where else Lumia 505 is being sold? I know it’s sold in Mexico and Colombia and that’s it.

    The Lumia 505 could have been in the “Other” category in March and therefore not had a full 3% increase in April, since it was released in January 2013.

    Lumia 505 is already out in Q1 (embedded in the others), not a new April device. How did you come to 3% increase for this device?

    my interpretation of this data is:
    q1 nokia sold 5.6m of WP smartphones 2/3 whas WP8 so 3.7m WP8 smartphones and lets say 2m WP8 during q4 so in total nokia sold 5.7million WP8 smartphones ( lumia 920, 820, and 620)
    now lets assume that they sold 1m of lumia 920, 820, and 620 after q1, so we have 6.7million of lumia 920, 820 and 620 which is 28.5% of market share. so when 28.5% stand for 6.7million, then 6.1% ( lumia 720 and 520) stand for 1.4million
    does it make any sense? 🙂

    Definitely more devices sold than last month with the 520 & 620 at full steam, but let’s not overestimate the figures.
