Huawei surprisingly lags behind in the list of the most popular smartphones, the most popular smartphones were recently from Samsung and Oppo.
Analysts reveal the most popular smartphone models in the recent past. Huawei made it to the top 10 with just one smartphone and Honor is completely absent. Something surprising for us. However, Huawei is at the same time the only manufacturer alongside Apple that was able to reach the top 10 with an expensive high-end smartphone. Otherwise, the top-selling smartphones recently are packed with devices in the lower price ranges. The global bestseller in the third quarter of 2019 was the Apple iPhone XR.
Samsung, Apple and Oppo dominate
As Counterpoint reveals, Samsung’s Galaxy A series was primarily capable of stealing Honor’s market share. A total of three A-smartphones are in the top 10, the two models Galaxy A10 and Galaxy A50 share the podium with an iPhone. Xiaomi’s Redmi 7A is so strong because of the Indian market, Oppo’s sales are so mainly driven by China. Although there is a much larger selection, the top 10 are made up of almost just three manufacturers.
These top 10 alone should generate 17% of all smartphone sales. In this case we also consider the number of smartphone models available around the world. The picture is similar in Germany, with Apple and Samsung at the top of the bestseller lists, Huawei is much more present here than Oppo.
