All Hail X: Apple’s Anniversary iPhone “Comfortably” Top Q1 Phone in Europe
Apple revealed in its earnings report that the iPhone X was the best-selling iPhone model in each week of the March quarter, and now third-party data shows that the anniversary device topped the entire phone market in Europe.
Canalys numbers indicate that in the first quarter of the year, sales of new phones dropped 6.3% year-on-year due to the so-called smartphone fatigue, with Samsung still remaining the leading company but with a major decline as well.
The South Korean phone market experienced a 15.4% decline versus the same quarter of the previous year and shipped 15.2 million units for a 33.1% share. Apple was the runner-up with a drop of 5.4% and 10.2 million sold units, enough to secure a 22.2% share. Huawei took everyone by surprise with a growth of no more, no less than 38.6% and 16.1% share.
