Apple iPhone X Becomes World's Best-Selling Smartphone Model

Apple iPhone X Becomes World's Best-Selling Smartphone Model

In terms of market share, the iPhone X represents 4.6 percent of all smartphones sold in the given period. Experts Strategy Analytics has compiled a ranking of the most sold smartphones in the first quarter of 2018, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

iPhone X was the bestselling smartphone of Q1 2018, a Strategy Analytics report has claimed.

The iPhone X was believed to impact Apple's sales revenue owing to its sheer United States dollars 1,000 price tag. Now, a new study from Strategy Analytics is shedding light on specifically how many iPhone X smartphones the company sold in the first three months of year, giving us a window into how well the smartphone has performed in the sales department.

It wasn't the only victor, either. "When combined, Apple today accounts for four of the world's six most popular smartphone models", the post added.

There was also quite a bit of speculation that, given the difficulties in the Chinese smartphone market lately, with slowing sales and increased competition, the iPhone X might be in for a rocky ride.

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. Apple bought $23.5 billion of stock in the March quarter. The higher ASP of iPhone X is boosting the top-line growth. Apple iPhone X is priced at Rs 95,390 for 64GB storage model, while the 128GB storage version costs Rs 1,08,930.

That's unless Apple finds a way to fast charge using the Lightning cable, but that would need to be upgraded to allow more power through, and that would mean users would need to go out and buy an "old" Lightning cable to connect their iPhone to a computer or more standard charging USB outlet. First, he said, the iPhone X had been the best-selling iPhone every single week of Q1. "I think the smartphone is sort of the best market for a consumer product company in the history of the world", Apple CEO Tim Cook said on Tuesday. Credit has to be given to the Samsung Galaxy S9 for coming in sixth on the list. That's almost 5% of the 345 million smartphones that shipped in total.

In defence of Android, our arguably best smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S9 only started selling towards the end of the quarter in question and thus shipping over 5.3 million units is a promise of better days to come. Analysts predict the S9 will become the highest selling Android smartphone in Q2 2018.

The phone has shipped an impressive 16 million units already.
