According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartphone shipments reached 345 million units in Q1 2018. Despite fears of expensive pricing, Apple iPhone X was the world’s best-selling smartphone model, shipping an impressive 16 million units during the quarter. Xiaomi Redmi 5A and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus were the world’s top-selling Android smartphone models.
This story is mainly doing the rounds as to how the speculation of the iPhone X doing poorly is hogwash, but it is the table that catches my eye:
This year’s iPhones take the top three spots.
And fourth-best selling smartphone of the quarter? Last year’s iPhone 7.
