Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best-selling Android phone in Q2 2017, but iPhone 7 is king of the world

47

The only real competitor for Samsung's flagships are Apple's iPhones, so there will be no surprise if the Galaxy S8 will be the best-selling Android smartphone in 2017. But for now, let's just say that it's the most popular product among Android fans in the second quarter.

The latest research from Strategy Analytics suggests Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones shipped 19 million units worldwide. That makes these two devices world's best-selling Android phones in Q2 2017.

Apple's iPhone 7 remains world's most popular smartphone model overall with no less than 16.9 million units shipped, while its bigger brother, the iPhone 7 Plus ended Q2 with 15.1 million units shipped. Apple's iPhone 7 models account for 8.9% of the global smartphone market share, while Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ captured only 5.3%.

Surprisingly, Xiaomi's Redmi 4A mid-range smartphone comes in fifth with 5.5 million units shipped in Q2 2017, which accounts for 1.5% of the global market share.

Apparently, Xiaomi is now the fourth largest handset vendor in China and the second biggest in China, even though the company is mostly selling its products online.

It's highly unlikely that an Android smartphone made by another company would be able to dethrone Samsung's flagships in Q3 and Q4 2017, but things might change in the coming years.
