Every quarter, market analysis companies aggregate sales of smartphone brands to determine which are the best-selling devices for reference.
According to the PhoneArena, IHS Market has just released the results of market analysis and said the iPhone XR is the best-selling smartphone in the first half of 2019, surpassing the two Samsung rivals. Although the price of $ 749 (about 17.4 million) is not cheap, the XR is the most affordable iPhone model launched in 2018.
And because of the price advantage, the iPhone XR helped Apple achieve an estimated 13.6 million sales in the first quarter of this year, and 13.3 million units in the next two months, bringing the total number of devices shipped to 26. , 9 million units in the first half of 2019 alone.
Not surprisingly, the iPhone XR has been so well received by users. Previously, the iPhone XR slipped to the top of the best-selling smartphone market in the US in January and Q2 2019. However, in Vietnam, iPhone XR is not much user interest. Products are continually priced by retail systems without improving sales. According to data from retail systems, the iPhone XR only sells about 30% of the two-year-old iPhone X.
Going back to the IHS Market report, followed by the iPhone XR, two mid-range Android devices from Samsung, the Galaxy A10 and A50. From January to June 2019, the Galaxy A10 sold 13.4 million units, while the A50 was no less competitive with 12 million units.
Specifically, the list listed the top 10 best-selling smartphones globally in the first half of 2019 with the fourth place going to the iPhone 8 with 10.3 million units; followed by mid-range smartphones such as Xiaomi Redmi 6A, Redmi Note 7, Galaxy J2 Core, …
The surprise is that through here, we do not see the appearance of any flagship models from the two giants Samsung and Huawei. As for Huawei, not only flagships but even mid-range devices are not included in the list above. However, many analysts believe that the Chinese group's revenue is not greatly affected by the political tensions between the US and China.
