Apple sold 7 out 10 best selling smartphones in 2021: Counterpoint – The Indian Express

Smartphones from Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi made it to the 2021 top 10 global smartphones list, according to a new research by Counterpoint. Apple’s iPhone models secured seven spots in the list, its highest ever. While Xiaomi captured two spots and Samsung one.
The top five models in 2021 were from Apple. The iPhone 12 was the best-selling model, followed by the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 11. These top three models contributed 41 per cent to Apple’s total sales. The research notes that pending demand for 5G upgrades by a strong and loyal iOS user base and push from carriers led the iPhone 12 series volumes.
“Besides, the delayed launch of the iPhone 12 series shifted some holiday season demand to the initial months of 2021. The latest iPhone 13 series is performing well with the iPhone 13 becoming the best-selling model in Q4 2021, followed by the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro,” Counterpoint said in its research.
According to Counterpoint, there were more than 4,200 active smartphone models in the global market, and the top 10 best-selling smartphone models contributed 19 per cent to the total global smartphone unit sales in 2021, compared to 16 per cent in 2020.
Samsung’s Galaxy A12, took the sixth position in 2021. With almost all regions and countries showed strong demand for the A12 throughout the year. North America, Latin America and Western Europe were its top markets.
“Samsung’s choice of features for the A12, like good camera setup, big battery size, six memory configurations and longer software support, made the model a value-for-money product that clicked with customers. We believe the momentum will be continued by the A12’s successor launched in December 2021, the Galaxy A13 (5G),” the company added.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi’s Redmi 9A and Redmi 9 entered the list in 2021, contributing 22 per cent to the brand’s total sales. Xiaomi performed well across regions. China, India and Asia-Pacific were its top markets. Xiaomi pushed its budget models such as the Redmi 9A and 9 in these price-conscious regions, where it faced component shortages for its entry-tier series.
