Top 5 mobile phone bestsellers: Samsung Galaxy A12 included
The market researchers of the International Data Corporation (IDC) have numbers on the world’s best-selling cell phones submitted. In the first three quarters of 2021, iPhones will be at the top of the list. Four of the five bestsellers come from Apple. In first place is the iPhone 12, but the second place is a surprise: Not the Galaxy S21, but the much cheaper Galaxy A12 wins the silver medal (source: IDC).
The iPhone 13 and the other versions of the cell phone are not (yet) represented in the ranking, as sales only began here in the third quarter of the year. In third place it can older iPhone 11 claim, while fourth and fifth place are occupied by the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the iPhone 12 Pro. The IDC does not provide any information on the actual number of smartphones sold.
It is hardly surprising that the Samsung Galaxy A12 is a real success. In addition to a small price, the cell phone can, among other things convince with a strong battery. This offers a capacity of 5,000 mAh and can be recharged with 15 watts.
