Year-end smartphone market is always more exciting than usual, because this is the time when many big companies launch their flagship product line. Recently, the prestigious statistical website Canalys has also officially launched the top 10 best-selling phones in the fourth quarter of 2019. We have 1 good news, and 1 bad news.
The good news is that the smartphone war has become more diverse and interesting as Xiaomi also appeared in this top 10, breaking the two-horse race between Apple and Samsung. However, the bad news is that both Xiaomi and Samsung only act as a lime pot, participating in just enough numbers, but the 5 Apple iPhones have already shared the top 5 positions. In particular, iPhone 11 seems to prefer to play alone when away from the remaining rivals, monopolizing the throne convincingly.
The top 10 smartphones with the highest sales in the fourth quarter of 2019, in the top five positions, belong to Apple’s iPhone.
Despite being the lowest priced model in the iPhone 3 series launched in September 2019, the attraction of the iPhone 11 even surpassed the two brothers 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. This is probably the result of the trend of users who prefer cheaper iPhones (like 11 and XR), which have been extremely popular in the past 2 years. They usually cost about $ 300 less than other high-end models, but can still meet all basic needs of users.
Considering the trend above, it is not surprising that the two iPhone XR and iPhone 8 series, launched in 2018 and 2017, also make the list, even having very high rankings. other. Another information: According to 91mobile, in the last 3 months of 2019 alone, Apple sold 70.7 million iPhone models, an increase of 7% over the same period in 2018, of which iPhone 11 alone accounted for about 30 million units.
The iPhone 11 lags the remaining rivals with sales of about 30 million units in the last three months of 2019.
Apple’s joy is the sadness of the rest, especially the rival Samsung. Losing to Apple, they could not even occupy the 6th position and had to pity behind the Redmi Note 8. A point worth noting is that all three Samsung models are in the mid-range line, without any silhouette of A flagship. It is said that the new generation Galaxy Note 10 deserves to be Apple’s rival, but the new A30s, A20s and A10s are the names that carry the team and retain a little face for Samsung in this fierce battle.
The lower half of Canalys’s statistics is a fierce battle between Samsung and Xiaomi, but all five models of these two manufacturers are only hovering around 5 to 10 million units. But what’s the meaning of a fight? What does it mean, when Apple has won so completely?
