The iPhone XR, which price currently starts from $749, dominated the smartphones shipment in the first of 2019. With 26.9 million units shipped, the device topped other devices from popular Android phone manufacturers. Apple’s iPhone XS Max and the two-year old iPhone 8 were also in the top list.
“Compared to the Android-based smartphone makers, Apple maintains a relatively small model lineup,” said Jusy Hong, research and analysis director. “This means that Apple’s total sales volume is divided among fewer models. As a result, each of Apple’s iPhone models tends to generate higher shipment numbers than comparable Android smartphones, such as those sold by Samsung.”
Samsung’s Galaxy A10 and A50 comes in second and third respectively with 25.4 million shipments combined. Their flagship Galaxy S10 phones did not make it to the list.
