Samsung and Xiaomi are the two largest smartphone companies in the world, with their devices selling the most.
But do you know which is the best selling smartphone in the world?
Hard to believe, but the best-selling smartphone worldwide between January and September 2021 is not Xiaomi or Samsung.
According to a report released by smartphone market data company IDC, the best-selling smartphone in the first nine months of 2021 is Apple’s iPhone 12.
The reason for the success of the iPhone 12 series is that for the first time, Apple has provided 5G upgrades to the users in the iOS operating system.
Earlier, in 4 quarters of 2020, iPhone 11 was gaining the first position, which was snatched by iPhone 12 in the first quarter of 2021.
In fact, the report states that 4 of the 5 best-selling phones between January and September 2021 are Apple’s iPhones.
After the iPhone 12, Samsung’s Galaxy A12 was the best-selling phone, followed by the iPhone 11, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro at number three, four and five, respectively.
The report does not specify the number of units sold for each model.
The iPhone 13 is not part of this list because it went on sale at the end of the third quarter.
But according to analysts, the demand for the iPhone 13 is quite high, so in the fourth quarter it will also be at some number in this list.
