Just a few weeks ago we wrote that how smartphone makers were busy in copying Apple iPhone X despite criticising it initially. Apparently, they have has a strong reason to do that as iPhone X has emerged as world’s most selling smartphone in Q1 2018, defying the initial reports on iPhone X sales in Q1 2018.

According to the recent report by a research firm, Apple sold 16 million units of iPhone X in Q1 2018 – almost double the estimated sales of iPhone X by another research firm released before Apple’s quarterly results were announced. The sales figure of iPhone X has completely debunked the notion that iPhone X was a “failure” or “flop”. This leads us to a fact that Apple iPhone X accounted for 4.6% of total smartphone market by models in Q1 2018.

The report on best-selling smartphones in Q1 2018 also highlights the undisputed domination of Apple on the smartphone industry. 4 out of top 5 world’s best selling smartphones in Q1 2018 carried Apple’s logo. iPhone 8 emerged as the second most selling smartphone in Q1 2018, followed by iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7.

Apple doesn’t officially release the sales figure of iPhone by models. Earlier this week Apple announced its fiscal Q2 2018 results. Overall Apple sold 52.2 million units of iPhone and posted a record revenue of $61.1 billion in fiscal Q2 2018, making it the best ever fiscal second quarter in the history of the company. iPhone accounted for 62% of Apple’s overall revenue in fiscal Q2 2018.

It is not the first time when Apple iPhone X emerged as the most selling smartphone in a quarter. iPhone X secured the top position as the most selling smartphone in Q4 2017 with the sales figure of 29 million units.

The surprise is not just limited to Apple iPhone alone. The unprecedented sales performance of Xiaomi Redmi 5A made it the most selling Android smartphone, beating Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. By selling 5.4 million units of Redmi 5A in Q1 2018, Xiaomi has emerged as the only company alongside Apple in the list of world’s 5 most selling smartphones in Q1 2018.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, however, was not far behind. Samsung sold 5.3 million units of the device to secure 1.5% share of the global smartphone market by the model in Q1 2018.

The impressive sales of iPhone X in Q1 2018 have once again proved how wrong the critics were. People were quite fascinated by the design, improved camera quality and various other innovations Apple has introduced in iPhone X.

In another report, released earlier last month, it was estimated that Apple generated 5X more profit from iPhone X than combined profit of 600 Android OEMs in Q4 2017.
