Apple's iPhone XR best selling model in Q3: Counterpoint NEW DELHI: Apple’s iPhone XR was the top-selling model globally in Q3 2019 with a 3% market share in global sales, as per Counterpoint Research’s recent data.

According to Counterpoint ‘Market Pulse’ report, the model has continuously been top globally in every quarter since Q4 2018 and has alone contributed to over one fourth of total Apple sales during the third quarter this year, making it the bestselling model for the US giant across all regions.

The report further says that Apple’s price adjustment for iPhone XR in China and several other markets also helped it keep demand strong during the quarter.

Samsung’s Galaxy A10 comes next in line with global sales market share of 2.6% with Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A20 also making it to the top 10 model list for Q3 2019. However, the list did not have any flagship handsets from Samsung.

As OPPO’s A series continued to do well in China and other regions, its A9, A5s, and A5 models also made it to the top 10 list. Huawei’s P30 also featured in the list however, according to Counterpoint, in the absence of GMS, Huawei devices could slip out of the top 10 models.

Xiaomi’s Redmi 7A buoyed by its popularity in India which contributed to over half of the total sales of the model during the quarter also sits in the top 10 list.

Additionally, owing to the increasing share of mid-tier devices in the top models, the combined wholesale revenue of the top 10 models declined 30% year on year, said the research firm.

There were five flagship devices in the top 10 in Q3 2018 but only three this year, part of the reason for this is the improving capabilities of devices in the mid-tier over the last year and smartphones in the mid-tier segment now coming equipped with features that even some premium segment products lacked as recently as a year ago, it added.

The research further contends that the increased mix of mid-tier products has also led to a fall in revenues for key smartphone OEMs during the quarter. The overall global handset profits during Q3 2019 declined by 11% year on year basis.
