That the iPhone is one of the most successful smartphones on the market is no news , but to what extent outweighs its rivals? Samsung is its archenemy par excellence, so it is inevitable to compare the iPhone with the Galaxy, star range of the South Korean company.
According to a report recently published by Counterpoint Research shows that the last month of the year was really exceptional for Apple, while for Samsung was not so good. And is that for the first time in its history, the company of the apple managed to surpass its rival in number of sales of smartphone .
In this way, Apple was able to sell in that month more units of iPhone than the sum total of all the models of the Galaxy range of Samsung . But why this change? What does this mean for Apple?
Apple dethrones Samsung and its Galaxy thanks to iPhone
The US company is positioned thanks to these sales figures as the main distributor of smartphones worldwide, something that has achieved for two reasons. The first is the good sales that the iPhone 7 is having, but also thanks to the crash suffered by Samsung with its Galaxy Note 7, which had to withdraw from the market due to a problem related to the batteries.
However, it should not be forgotten that this report refers to the last month of the year , that is, to December, a month in which sales experience significant increases due to the holiday shopping season. For this reason, these sales figures are expected to decline over the coming months.
With this Samsung detonation produced by Apple as the main distributor of smartphones worldwide, the South Korean company is displaced from a throne that dominated with enough slack. Also, do not forget that other companies like Huawei are coming very hard , so the guys at Samsung should not rest on their laurels if they do not want to continue descending.
So the smartphone market landscape could not be more interesting in the face of this 2017, with a fight to three to see who gets to take the throne . On one side would be Apple with the iPhone 8 , an expected model that coincides with the tenth anniversary of the launch of the original iPhone, on the other hand would be Samsung and the new Galaxy S8 that will be presented in just over two months, and lastly Huawei with The new Huawei P10, whose presentation is expected to occur in this year's MWC.
