Web Desk. Samsung is the 2nd largest smartphone company in the world, with its devices selling the most. But do you know which is the best selling smartphone in the world?
It’s hard to believe, but the top 5 best-selling smartphones worldwide during the January to March 2021 quarter did not include any of Samsung’s phones.
According to a report released by Counterpoint, a company that releases smartphone market data, four of the top five best-selling phones in the first quarter of this year are Apple’s iPhones.
According to the report, from January to March 2021, the best-selling smartphone in the world was Apple’s iPhone 12 with a market share of 5%. The iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro came in second and third with 4% and 3% market share, respectively.
For the first year in a row, the world’s best-selling smartphone, the iPhone 11, rose from number one to number four after four quarters. The reason for the success of the iPhone 12 series is that for the first time, Apple has provided 5G upgrades to users in the iOS operating system.
Xiaomi’s budget smartphones Redmi 9A and Redmi 9 ranked 5th and 6th respectively in this list. Samsung’s Galaxy A12 ranks 7th, while the Redmi Note 9 ranks 8th on the list.
The Galaxy A21S and A31 ranked 9th and 10th, respectively. Interestingly, the iPhone 12 is the best-selling phone, but the phone that earned the most revenue this quarter was the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Apple’s iPhone 12 series phones were introduced a month later in 2020 due to the Coronavirus epidemic. Surprisingly, the cheapest phone in the series, the iPhone 12 mini, did not get much attention.
