A new study has revealed the best selling smartphone last year and it may surprise you because it is not an Android phone, but an Apple mobile that has been with us for quite some time and that seems to be very successful among users according to the data.
It has been the OMDIA consultation that has released this mobile list. We are really talking about units sent, which means that the more shipments have been made, the more phones have been sold. Believe it or not, Apple has a lot to say here
And is that the best selling mobile last year have been nothing more and nothing less than the iPhone Xr, the cheapest phone from Apple that has been with us for a long time and has not been renewed at the moment, although we do not know if I will do so soon.
46.3 million units shipped
That is the figure of the study that places the iPhone Xr as terminal ms sold in 2019, a figure that is far from the second whose terminal is also a company phone even more recent than the XR. We leave you the list of the first 5 below:
- iPhone Xr: 46.3 million shipments.
- iPhone 11: 37.3 million shipments.
- Galaxy A10: 30.3 million shipments.
- Galaxy A50: 24.2 million shipments.
- Galaxy A20: 19.2 million shipments.
If we follow the mobile ranking with more units sent last year, we find in 6 place the iPhone 11 Pro Max, followed by the iPhone 8, Redmi Note 7, iPhone 11 Pro and finally the Galaxy J2 Core in the number 10 with 15, 2 million units shipped.
The first two places are very controlled Apple, but now in third place is an Android mobile, in this case the Samsung Galaxy A10, followed by the A50 and the A20, three fairly recent terminals of the new low-middle range of the manufacturer.
These data show that Samsung is doing a very good job with the new Galaxy A terminals, remember that it is a range that began to be renewed a short time ago and began to bear fruit last year, as can be seen in the data.
It's funny to see how We did not find high-end Android phones in the list of 10 ms sold (They are all of low and medium range), but we know that we have up to 4 Apple devices with first class technical characteristics and with quite high prices.
Another good news for Xiaomi is that its Redmi range seems to be working, there is nothing else to see as the Redmi Note 7 sneaks into the list of the best sellers, so probably another new study can later include some terminal again.
Samsung takes advantage in 5G phones
2019 was undoubtedly the year of take-off of smartphones with 5G connectivity, since the truth is that we saw how different manufacturers launched their corresponding versions with this technology, they are usually identical terminals to the high-end of their catalog with 5G.
This same study reveals that the market for these terminals continues to grow and more and more mobile phones are sold with this connectivity. In total they were 14.7 million devices in 2019, a figure that is sure to double this 2020, although it will have to be seen later.
Here Samsung dominates the market since it places Up to 4 of your 5G devices in the list of best sellers, although I know that a Huawei smartphone appears. The list is as follows:
- Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G: 2.6 million units shipped.
- Mate 30 Pro 5G: 2.5 million units shipped.
- Galaxy S10 5G: 2.4 million units shipped.
- Galaxy Note 10 5G: 1.2 million units shipped.
- Galaxy A90 5G: 0.9 million units shipped.
The first place is for the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, but the Mate 30 Pro 5G and the S10 5G follow closely. Surely this list changes soon as they begin to appear 5G cheaper phones or even some iPhone, a connectivity that is increasingly present.
