Analytical agency IHS Market in London made the top 10 best-selling phones.
The biggest excitement "succumbed" to the smartphone Apple iPhone Xr. Despite the cost of the “apple” at $ 749, the price of modern flagship devices reached $ 1,000 or more.
According to experts, only in the first half of the year, shipments of iPhone Xr around the world amounted to 26.9 million units.
In the first quarter of this year, 13.6 million gadgets were sold, and in the second quarter – 13.3 million.
But Samsung also does not want to back down, and the South Korean Galaxy A10 gadget became the second popular smartphone, with sales of 13.4 million units. In third place was the Galaxy A50 – giving way to second place only 1.4 million devices.
According to analysts, Apple produces a series in limited quantities, so the sales of each "apple" are so high.
Samsung implements a lot of devices, but the line of models is much wider and, accordingly, there are not many sales for each of them.
This approach of Apple to its line was able to bring the "apple" company to as many as three places in the TOP 10:
Apple iPhone 8 – fourth place (10.3 million);
Xiaomi Redmi 6A – fifth place (10 million);
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 – sixth place (10 million);
Samsung Galaxy J2 Core – seventh place (9.9 million);
Oppo A5 – eighth place (9.7 million);
Apple iPhone Xs Max – ninth place (9.6 million);
Samsung Galaxy A30 – tenth place (9.2 million).
