At the end of every quarter in a year, Counterpoint Research releases the sales data of the most popular smartphone models around the world. Although, we have come to the end of the year and Q4 2019, Counterpoint has just released the data for Q3 of 2019 for all smartphones sold globally. And this data suggests an unlikely winner.
Counterpoint’s data suggests that Apple’s iPhone XR sold the most across the world, with a total market share of three percent. This has shocked expert projections especially as the iPhone 11 also started selling at the same time. However, the iPhone 11 only managed a total global market share of 1.6 percent.
The second position goes to the Samsung Galaxy A10 with a market share of 2.6 percent. Samsung Galaxy A50 takes the third spot with a market share of 1.9 percent.
The Oppo A9 and the iPhone 11 conclude the top five spots at 1.6 percent each. Other phones that made the top ten list include Oppo A5s, Samsung Galaxy A20s, Oppo A5, Xiaomi Redmi 7A and Huawei P30.

Price slashes helping the iPhone XR to outsell others
The defining factor could be that the iPhone XR had been on sale for a long time and in Q3 2019, Apple had slashed the price of the iPhone XR massively. Also, several variants of the iPhone XR sold with high discounts on online marketplaces, leading to higher sales of the iPhone XR.
The iPhone 11 started selling at a lower price than the iPhone XR after its launch in September 2019. This helped the latest iPhone gain a significant market share just after its launch.
It was a great quarter also for Samsung’s affordable Galaxy A series. The Galaxy A50, particularly, offers the best of everything at an affordable price.
