The top three best-selling smartphones are the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, and iPhone 12 Pro. Together, these three models accounted for 12 percent of the global market. Only in fifth place is the budget model from Xiaomi Redmi 9A with two percent of the market.
The list of popular smartphones of the beginning of 2021 also includes Samsung’s budget models, which together occupied three percent of the global smartphone market. The researchers concluded that the iPhone was also the most successful smartphone in terms of revenue — models 12 Pro Max, 12, 12 Pro, and 11 occupy the first four places. Only behind them is the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G. These models brought great revenue to manufacturers due to not only large sales but also high cost.
