Unless a real disaster happens in the next few weeks, like a nuclear war or a Nazi invasion in the United States (but obviously we don't need to worry about any of this after all, are we in the 21st century, anyway?), Everything indicates that the next ms be the one where we will see the presentation of the new iPhones, taking from the current 7 and 7 Plus the crown of Apple's flagship flagship segment.
However, even though the current iPhones are seeing the aftermath of their glorious reign on the horizon, this does not even mean that they still cannot do well in the market. The latest report from Strategy Analytics shows exactly that: even in their last months of life, the iPhones 7 and 7 Plus continue to be the most popular smartphones in the world, surpassing formidable and younger competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S8.
According to the survey, referring to global numbers in the second quarter of 2017, the iPhone 7 was the most dispatched smartphone in the world in the period, with 16.9 million units; his biggest brother came in second with 15.1 million devices. The Galaxy S8 took third place, with 10.2 million units, while the slightly larger S8 + had 9 million units and was in fourth place. Surprisingly, the fifth most popular smartphone of the period was Xiaomi's Redmi 4A, with 5.5 million units a good reminder of the power of the Chinese and Indian markets, where it is distributed.
On Ma devices, Strategy Analytics senior analyst Juha Winter said:
The iPhone 7 remains the most popular smartphone in the world for a combination of factors, such as user-friendly design, an extensive library of applications and a massive presence at points of sale.
It remains to be seen, now, if the next devices to receive the iPhone 7 torch will be able to maintain the family's popularity. One thing for sure: the surprise factor is gone completely, so it's good that the ?iPhone 8? and the ?7s / 7s Plus? do their homework properly; otherwise, considering the competition's recent good work, Apple's privileged position is at serious risk.
