“By limiting the number of models it offers compared to its top competitors, Apple has been able to concentrate its sales on a few smartphones that have broad appeal, like the iPhone XR,” Hong added.

After Apple bagged both the first place and second place, Samsung was the next most preferred brand this year. The Samsung Galaxy A10, Galaxy A50, and Galaxy A20 sold shipments of 30.3 million, 24.2 million and 23.1 million units respectively. There were two more iPhones in close proximity.
