According to research by Counterpoint Research, 5 of Apple’s models led the global best-selling smartphones. Samsung wasn’t far behind with 4 models. Xiaomi rounded off the top 10 with one model. According to the Monthly Handset Sales Tracker for 2022, 21% of the market for smartphones was made up of the top 10 models.
Apple continues to lead the pack, with its iPhone 13 models capturing the top three positions. The iPhone 13 particularly did well, taking the top spot and relegating its Pro variant to second place. The recently launched iPhone SE 2022 saw triple-digit MoM growth, entering the top 10 list.
Samsung captured four spots in the list, with its 2022 flagship, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, sitting at fifth overall. The S22 Ultra was designed to replace the Galaxy Note after a two-year hiatus and has become the go-to model for lovers of the Note series.
The Galaxy A-series devices, positioned at different price points and targeting different customers, helped Samsung capture another three spots. The newly launched Galaxy A13 looks to be replicating the success that the Galaxy A12 series had last year.
Despite flat sales in April, the Redmi Note 11 LTE, which contributed 11% to Xiaomi’s total sales, retained a spot on the top 10 list in April. With a quarter of all Note 11 LTEs having been sold in CALA in April, the region is emerging as one of Xiaomi’s key growth drivers. The brand has been facing supply issues and its overall sales declined by around 25% compared to April 2021.
