Hey Siri, what’s the best selling smartphone of 2019? If you’re an iPhone lover like me, you might have expected iPhone 11 to be crowned the market’s best-selling smartphone last year, but in reality, there’s another device that gave the 11 a run for its money – the iPhone XR.
In fact, according to new data from Omdia’s Model Tracking Report, Apple sold 9 million more units of the budget-friendly iPhone XR than it did the pricier iPhone 11, effectively making the iPhone XR the best selling smartphone of 2019. While Apple secured both first and second place in Omdia’s analysis, Samsung dominated the remaining runner-up slots with the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A50, and Galaxy A20.
Is this a sign that cheaper smartphones will become the best selling devices in 2020 and beyond? While we can’t be certain, the rumors are already in full swing about what Apple and Samsung have in the pipeline. Of course, we never really know what other rivals like Google or OnePlus may have up their sleeves as well.
