iPhone 7 and 7 Plus dominate the market.
iPhone and Galaxy are the two most popular phone brands in the world in the second quarter of 2017. According to a new market research published by Strategy Analytics, Apple has sold 16.9 million iPhone 7 and 15.1 million iPhone 7 Plus units in Q2 2017.At the same time, Samsung sold 10.2 million Galaxy S8 and 9 million S8+ in the same quarter.
Strategy Analytics estimates that the fifth most popular model is the Xiaomi Redmi 4A, with 5.5 million units. Overall, the market has increased 5.5% compared with the same quarter in 2016, with 360.4 million total shipments.
While Apple holds the first and the second position with iPhone 7 and 7Plus, Android is a distant leader if we are talking about operating systems. Thanks to the huge variety of models on the market, Android dominates almost every single country in the world, except Japan where iOS and Android are on parity. In other countries, for example in Spain, Android is close to 80%, while iPhones has below 20%.
Apple has been holding the first positions in the ranking of global phone shipments for years. Last year, Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6S plus acceived a similar success.
