- After Apple’s iPhone XR, Samsung’s Galaxy A10 came second with global sales market share of 2.6 per cent
- The overall global handset profits during Q3 2019 declined by 11 per cent year on year basis
According to a report by Counterpoint Research, Apple’s iPhone XR was the top-selling model globally in Q3 2019 with a three per cent market share in global sales.
The report also mentioned that Apple’s price adjustment for iPhone XR in China and several other markets also helped it keep demand strong during the quarter.
After Apple’s iPhone XR, Samsung’s Galaxy A10 came second with global sales market share of 2.6 per cent with Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A20 also making it to the top 10 model list for Q3 2019.
Three flagship devices in the top 10
This year, there are three flagship devices in the top 10 as compared to five in Q3 2018. The reason is the improving capabilities of devices in the mid-tier over the last year and smartphones in the mid-tier segment now coming equipped with features that even some premium segment products lacked as recently as a year ago.
The report also highlighted that the increased mix of mid-tier products has also led to a fall in revenues for key smartphone OEMs during the quarter. The overall global handset profits during Q3 2019 declined by 11 per cent year on year basis.
