Apple's iPhone 11 is now the world's most popular smartphone, New Electronics reported referring to the Omdia Smartphone Tracker Report.
In the first three months of this year, Apple shipped 19.5 million units of the iPhone 11, which is almost six million more than the XR model shipments for the same period last year.
“For more than five years, one thing has remained consistent in the smartphone business: Apple has taken either the first or second rank in Omdia’s global model shipment ranking,” said Jusy Hong, director of smartphone research at Omdia. “Apple’s success is the result of its strategy to offer relatively few models. This has allowed the company to focus its efforts on a small number of products that appeal to a broad selection of consumers and sell in extremely high volumes.”
Samsung Galaxy A51 ranked second (6.8 million gadgets), leaving behind Xiaomi Redmi Note 8.
