A poor economic outlook may negatively affect US consumers' appetite for flagship smartphones
Early sales in South Korea of Samsung's 5G-capable Galaxy S20 series were 30% lower than those of last year's comparable Galaxy S10 series, suggesting consumers are hesitant to purchase expensive flagship devices given broader economic uncertainty stemming from the coronavirus pandemic, according to Reuters. In response to the low sales volume, Samsung plans to launch cheaper models of 5G-capable phones in the first half of 2020 — the entry-level Galaxy S20 retails for 1.248 million won ($1,019). South Korea managed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus through social distancing and aggressive widespread testing, but the domestic consumer-confidence index nevertheless reached its lowest level since March 2009, per The Wall Street Journal. US consumers share this trepidation, as many look to cut back on non-essential spending to weather the economic downturn provoked by the pandemic. Half of US respondents report spending less on non-essentials during the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Business Insider Intelligence Coronavirus Consumer Survey.

How soaring unemployment will impact wireless carriers
More than 6.6 million US adults filed for unemployment benefits last week, shattering previous records, according to Business Insider. Just under 10 million in the US have now filed for unemployment in second half of March — this surpassed the number of unemployment filings completed in the first six months of the Great Recession. Anticipating economic fallout that could be caused by widespread quarantine measures, all major US network operators agreed to a 60-day pact with provisions to waive coronavirus-related late fees and to suspend internet cut-offs due to unpaid bills. Additionally, AT&T and T-Mobile introduced low-cost prepaid plans that could staunch subscriber losses as many consumers look to cut costs. As consumers cut spending on nonessential goods, we anticipate many will downgrade wireless plans but retain some form of service. Half of US consumers are already spending less on nonnecessities, and 89% of respondents anticipate it will take more than one month before their spending on nonessential goods returns to normal, according to the Business Insider Intelligence Coronavirus Consumer Survey.
