The most popular smartphone in 2019

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — For many years now, South Korean Samsung has been the leader in smartphone sales in pieces, successfully fighting off Chinese competitors.

However, this does not mean that the company’s devices are in the lead in the “individual standings” – in the world ranking of the best-selling smartphones for 2019, the first Samsung device is found only in the third position.

According to the research company Omdia, cited by MacRumors, the best-selling smartphone in 2019 was the iPhone XR released in the fall of 2018 – Apple sold 46.3 million such devices worldwide.

The second line was taken by the iPhone 11 – in fact, an improved version of the XR with the same dimensions and screen, but a new processor and an additional wide-angle camera. 37.3 million units of such phones were sold last year.

Places from third to fifth in the ranking of the most popular smartphones of 2019 were taken by Samsung devices – Galaxy A10, A50 and A20.

These budget devices sold 30.3 million, 24.2 million and 19.2 million units, respectively.

Apple dominates in positions 5 through 10 – here are the ultra-expensive iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11 Pro, relatively affordable compared to the flagship iPhone 8, as well as two state employees – Redmi Note 7 and Samsung Galaxy J2 Core.

Thus, neither Samsung, nor Huawei, nor other manufacturers have succeeded in squeezing the “apple” company on the market of expensive smartphones – consumers who continue to choose credit devices, who are not embarrassed in funds (or without any doubts about getting loans), continue to choose Apple devices.
