According to a report from Omdia, iPhone 11 from Apple was the top-selling smartphone model globally during the first half of 2020. The total sales for the models were 37.7 million units. It was a significant improvement over the 2019 H1 performance. Back then, the iPhone XR sold a total of 26.9 million units.
Samsung took second place with the Galaxy A51, which sold a total of 11.4 million units during the six-month period. Unfortunately, though, the good news ended there for Samsung as that was the only model that made it to the top 10.
In contrast, during H1 2019, Samsung had five models in the top 10 – Galaxy A10, A50, A5, J2 Core and A30. The total number of units sold during that period was 13.4 million.
On the other hand, Apple had five models in the top 10 in H1 2020. In addition to iPhone 11, there was the iPhone SE, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11 Pro. Compared to H1 2019, there was an improvement as it only had three models in the top 10 back then.
Xiaomi Redmi which had only two entries in the top 10 in H1 2019 took four slots in 2020.
