Strategy Analytics estimates will come as a big relief for Apple investors, especially after the iPhone maker reported a 1% drop in iPhone sales year over year.
The rapid ascent of Chinese electronics company Oppo in the global mobile phone market continued in the first quarter as its new flagship device, the R9s, became the world's best-selling Android smartphone, according to Strategy Analytics. They've been a cash cow for Apple for nearly a decade now and a new report released today suggests that Apple's smartphones continue to bring in record-breaking numbers. Samsung is the top brand preferred in India at 26%, followed by Apple at 15%.
Apart from the two iPhones, the third spot was taken by Oppo's R9s.
The fourth and fifth positions belong to Samsung with the Galaxy J3 (2016) and Galaxy J5 (2016). "The R9S is Oppo's flagship 4G device with key features such as dual-SIM connectivity and fingerprint security", said Neil Mawston, executive director, Strategy Analytics. Strategy Analytics director Linda Sui noted that the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J3 helped the Korean company offset the "troubles with the Note 7 battery fiasco". With only 450 million Indians having access to the internet (out of a population greater than 1.3 billion), smartphone manufacturers also need to get their phones in front of potential new customers in any way they can, and that means getting more devices in more physical stores.
