The best selling smartphone according to the Top 10 list by Omdia is Apple's iPhone XR with 46.3 million units shipments in 2019 whereas in 2018 it got only 23.1 million units shipped in 2018, making the device one of the best-selling smartphones ever. Samsung discontinued the J series a year ago and introduced the A and M series and the top 10 smartphones in the world include three smartphones from Samsung's Galaxy A series. On the global scale, only Oppo's A5 managed to appear on the top 10 best-selling smartphone lists which are pretty impressive.
The group said that the iPhone XR was the world's most popular smartphone in 2019, easily out-shipping all other models and extending Apple's record of perennially offering the market's top-selling product. However, Omdia and Counterpoint Research differ slightly in the exact models that were the best sellers.
Huawei, another manufacturer making plenty of headlines previous year, is not even in the top global market share list.

As anticipated, the Chinese favor their own brands like Oppo and Vivo rather than opting for foreign models.
The US sanctions ultimately led to Huawei having to cancel the release of phones that would have had to be shipped without Google apps and services. The Galaxy A50 is an interesting devices, because it is a midrange phone that Samsung packed with solid specifications like OLED screen, underdisplay fingerprint sensor and a good camera, but, more importantly, Samsung had an aggressive ad campaign, especially in Europe, to show off the new A50. To this end, other manufacturers such as Motorola and OnePlus among others are targeting value buyers with flagship smartphones hitting the consumer market.
Overall, according to the Counterpoint Research, 5G smartphones are still in their infancy with just 1% of market share although 2020 could change a lot since many 5G smartphones have already launched while many are launching soon.
