Counterpoint research recently posted its review of the best-selling media terminals in 2019. And it highlights the role played by Apple worldwide, where the six iPhone models are among the top ten best-selling. A army led by the iPhone XR.
As is often the case in these cases, we have to take a close look at this analysis and look at whether Apple (or any other company) is disclosing official sales prices.
Six of the top ten iPhone, and iPhone XR on the front
That the iPhone XR was the best-seller of the year I must not miss anyone. Apple has already shown several times during its creation that it was the gram that sold the most in a week. Yesterday, another study focused on his leadership.
Perhaps most surprising is the iPhone 11's immediate pursuit. This end is introduced in September last year, as well It was on sale for only four months. Of course, among them was the Christmas campaign, which is usually focused on a significant level of sales.
Samsung came in three positions on the A50, A10 and A20. Inside are OPPO A5 and iPhone 8. Close the list iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 7 and iPhone XS Max. Most impressive is the price range as competitors move forward:
- Global A50: 250 euros.
- Galaxy A10: 160 euros.
- OPPO A5: 200 euros.
- Galaxy A20: 172 euros.
None of them can be considered the last of the highest, rather the lowest. From Apple Centers, the cheapest is the iPhone XR
The "danger" of smartphones
The distribution of smartphones globally depends largely on the region we are looking at. At the level of its worldwide sales, Counterpoint adds a map with six major regions of the world:
Apple clearly dominates the market in North America. Only five iPhone groups make up 30% of total sales in the region. For Europe, Apple just shook the iPhone XR and iPhone 11. And throughout Asia Pacific, we only get the iPhone XR.
Samsung is the world's largest manufacturer and shows in Europe, Latin America and Africa and the Middle East. It's amazing to see that The world's second largest manufacturer, Huawei, just rank among the best sellers in China. Of course, it's a very high P30. This is due to the company's withdrawal from its home country after the US-sanctioned ban.
Where we find a number of variations are specific to China and Asia and the Pacific. Here we run 3 or 4 different types they rank their smartphones among the best sellers. In both regions we have many products that compete in the most competitive market segment.
Right now and as Counterpoint points out, 5G counts at 1% of The complete models have been sold in 2019. The introduction of many models, including the iPhone, is expected to compress this kind of feature among consumers.
