Named the best selling smartphone in the world

Apple iPhone 6s

In comparison, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which were launched alongside the iPhone X, sold 12.5 million units and 8.3 million units respectively. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus was the sixth most shipped phone with 5.3 million units. Apple has now shifted nearly 50 million iPhone X units worldwide since commercial launch in November, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus shipped 12.5 million and 8.3 million units respectively for second and third position.

One of the most disappointing things about the launch of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X was the lack of a power adapter that would actually support the phone's fast charging functionality. The phone is powered by the A11 Bionic chip, which is also on the iPhone 8 series.

In recent weeks, Apple's stock has backed off from its all-time high of $183.50 because of concerns about iPhone X demand, though expectations of a dividend increase and stock buyback have offset the decline.

The rumor also states that the USB-C lead that wouldn't replace the Lightning cable - that's the standard Apple isn't changing - so that's another piece thrown into the mix.

According to a new report from Strategy Analytics, Apple's most expensive smartphone ever, with a $1319 CAD starting price, has defied expectations to sell almost 50 million units since its launch just six months ago.

Global smartphone shipments reached 345 million units in Q1 2018. The fact is, it's good to be in the smartphone business, and Apple knows that better than anyone.

Apple iPhone quarterly sales have beat Wall Street estimates with the company reporting sales of 52.2 million iPhones against a Wall Street target of 52.3 million. "Combined together, Apple today accounts for four of the world's six most popular smartphone models", Juha added. The company also increased its quarterly dividend 16 per cent, compared with a 10.5 per cent increase past year.

Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics mentioned the Apple flagship managed to grab 5% of the total market share worldwide which is an impressive feat considering the sheer number of options available in the market. We hope to see the Samsung Galaxy S9 as the most selling Android smartphone in the Second Quarter.

The Android smartphone market was diametrically different.

Strategy Analytics, in its report, notes that Xiaomi is selling high volumes through online channels in key partnerships with e-commerce companies like JD and Flipkart. Those were the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and the latter of these racked up 17.4-million units shipped. Xiaomi has become wildly popular across India and China.
