Last quarter belonged to Apple. They sold the most smartphones of all

The sales results of smartphones are a regular struggle who did better in a given period. However, the longer I look at them, the more I come to the conclusion that it only makes sense in the perspective of a few years – because both quarterly and annual statements largely depend on the premieres of the most important devices in the manufacturer’s portfolio. You can see it clearly in the last quarter of 2020, where Apple reigns. But in 2020 it was not the Cupertino giant that sold the most smartphones.

The iPhone 12 family are the best-selling smartphones in the last quarter of 2020 – no one is surprised?

According to the latest Gartner report, Apple sold 79.9 million devices in the last quarter – which is a 14.9% increase compared to the same period in 2019. However, the comparison with Samsung, which sold 62.1 million smartphones in the last quarter of 2020, and in 2019 … as much as 11.8% more.

Nevertheless, this quarterly result seems to be insignificant when we look at a wider perspective and it turns out that it was not Apple, but Samsung that sold the most devices in 2020. According to Gartner’s data, it was 253 million devices. Apple was in second place (199.8 million). Behind them were Huawei (182.6 million), Xiaomi (145.8 million) and Oppo (111.8 million). After all, the most depressing drops for Huawei, which are 24.1% compared to the previous year. Apparently, no one should be surprised, but in hard numbers it looks shocking. And probably no one has any illusions that these numbers will be more favorable to them next year.
