The third quarter of the year saw the smartphone market bounce back after the dreadful first and second quarters, with Samsung reclaiming the top spot from Huawei. It also saw Xiaomi emerge as the number three brand globally, passing Apple during this period.
Now, Canalys has revealed the top 10 smartphone models shipped during Q3 2020, and Apple’s iPhone 11 was far and away the number one device during this period. Apple’s 2019 flagship shipped over 16 million units, according to the tracking firm, followed by the iPhone SE 2020 in second place.
It’s worth noting Apple didn’t release the iPhone 12 series in Q3, so all eyes will be on Q4 to see what kind of impact the new phones have on the market.
The top Android phone model for Q3 2020 was the Galaxy A21s in third place, nipping at the iPhone SE’s heels. Samsung’s phone sports a power-efficient processor and a 5,000mAh battery, making for a device that should give you two days of usage. Toss in a ~$200 price tag and a quad rear camera setup, and it seems like the Korean brand struck gold with this device.
