Counterpoint Research released its report of the best-selling smartphones in China and in the world for 2018. The OPPO R15 emerged the best-selling smartphone in China, followed by iPhone X. Oppo A83 and Oppo A5 are also in the top 4.
In the world, iPhone X is leading as the best-selling smartphone for 2018, with other three Apple smartphones (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 7)on the chart. Xiaomi Redmi 5A also occupied the last position on the top 5 charts.
The Counterpoint report was released on the company’s Weibo account, without full detail information. The top 3 phones on the chart have a total of almost 100 million, while iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR shipped more than 16 million each. The best-selling report also shows that the 2017 Apple flagship smartphones got the highest market share than the successors in the global sales ranking.
In China, the list is flooded with Chinese phones – eight out of the ten phones on the list are Chinese. The remaining two are iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.
Interestingly enough, there are no Huawei smartphones in any of the charts. The second biggest smartphone manufacturer is flooding the market so much that users have an abundance of options to choose from. Counterpoint clarified, that the best-selling phone was the Huawei P20 Lite with over 13 million units, but that wasn’t enough to make any of the Top 10 lists.
