One more month,have published the report with the best-selling smartphones around the planet . On this occasion, the data corresponding to the last month of May of this 2018, conclude thatto head the list of best-selling terminals with one of their latest bets, and that in the Android field, Samsung is the brand that has been able to take one of its models to the top, tying with the main standard of the Cupertino in terms of market share.
Already in the last report it was seen that the Samsung Galaxy S9 + , the best existing Samsung smartphone today in the market, had all the ballots to reach the top of the market, with about 5.3 million units sold at the time. Now, Samsung has once again demonstrated its power over the rest of the terminal manufacturers based on the Android operating system, taking your best phone to the second position of this top 10.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 + was the best-selling phone in May
Already in the month of April, Samsung was able to overtake Apple and its iPhone X by a minimum margin. However, in May it seems that things have changed slightly, because the iPhone 8 returns to retake the first position of the ranking of best selling smartphones in the world , with a market share of 2.4%.
But that is exactly the same quota that the Samsung Galaxy S9 + has reached during the month in which the report was made, and that, according to the researchers, sales of the South Korean terminal stopped substantially in Europe, although they remained constant in the United States market.
A position below the two kings of the market is another model of Apple, the iPhone X, with a share that amounts to 2.3%, followed closely by the affordable Xiaomi Redmi 5A , which in turn pursues the iPhone 8 in its Plus version. Finally, in sixth position and with the same quota as the iPhone 8 Plus , is the Samsung Galaxy S9 in its content-sized edition.
While these figures seem to clash with the idea that, we must keep in mind that sales of smartphones have fallen in 2018 for the first time in history, and therefore Companies do not need to sell so many units to be at the top of this ranking. Now we just have to wait until we see if Samsung is able to surpass Apple, at the door of the launch of the new batch of terminals that are still to come, among them theand the next generation of iPhones.
