Talking about Apple, Omdia‘s research analyst Jusy Hong said, “The company’s continued dominance on this front is all the more remarkable when considering that Apple’s price hikes caused overall iPhone shipments to decline last year. By limiting the number of models it offers compared to its top competitors, Apple has been able to concentrate its sales on a few smartphones that have broad appeal, like the iPhone XR.”

The second best selling phone, globally, was the iPhone 11 which got released in 2019, and it’s sale was 9 million units less than the iPhone XR, at 37.3 million phones.

With the top two spots taken by the Apple, Samsung had it’s phones landing number 3, 4 and 5 on Omdia’ list. The phones were Samsung Galaxy A10, A50 and A20 by Omdia while Counterpoint put Oppo A5 on the fifth position with iPhone 8 at sixth position and then Galaxy A20 at seventh.
