The iPhone X

Despite being a costly smartphone, Apple sold 16 million units of the iPhone X last quarter. It was followed by the other lower-end Apple smartphones like the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 7.

Juha Winter, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics, added, We estimate the Apple iPhone X shipped 16.0 million units and captured 5 percent marketshare worldwide in Q1 2018. For the second quarter running, the iPhone X remains the world’s most popular smartphone model overall, due to a blend of good design, sophisticated camera, extensive apps, and widespread retail presence for the device. Apple has now shifted almost 50 million iPhone X units worldwide since commercial launch in November 2017. The Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus shipped 12.5 and 8.3 million units, respectively, for second and third place. The previous-generation iPhone 7 shipped a respectable 5.6 million units for fourth place. Combined together, Apple today accounts for four of the world’s six most popular smartphone models.

Next on the list is the world's best selling Android smartphone last Q1 2018, the Redmi 5A. Xiaomi sold 5.3 million units of the Redmi 5A entry-level smartphone worldwide. It is also the most affordable handset found in the list of Strategy Analytics.

Linda Sui, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, We estimate Xiaomi Redmi 5A shipped 5.4 million units for fifth place and 2 percent marketshare worldwide in Q1 2018. Xiaomi has become wildly popular across India and China. Xiaomi is selling a huge volume of smartphones through online channels, with key retail partners including Flipkart and JD.

Samsung Galaxy S9+

On the other hand, Samsung's Galaxy S9+ is on the sixth place with 2 percent of the global market share. The South Korean giant sold 5.3 million units of the Galaxy S9+ worldwide.

Woody Oh, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, We estimate Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus shipped 5.3 million units for sixth place and 2 percent marketshare worldwide in Q1 2018. Samsung’s new flagships, Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, only started shipping toward the end of the first quarter, but shipments are already off to a very good start. The S9 Plus delivers an attractive, bezel-less, curved-screen design, a rich portfolio of software apps, and best-in-class retail distribution across dozens of countries. We expect the S9 Plus to become the best-selling Android smartphone globally in the second quarter of 2018.

It is a very impressive feat by Samsung considering that the Galaxy S9+ only started shipping at the end of Q1 2018. Yet, it is included in this list.
