First launched in 2018, the XR was essentially a budget version of the iPhone XS and XS Max models.
The main reasons? The phone's camera and price tag. This enhancement has been extremely appealing to consumers, driving the increase in sales. But, Samsung's Galaxy A51 is far behind iPhone 11 as only 6.8 million units were sold during the first quarter of this year.
However, the most striking performance in the first quarter was delivered by Chinese OEM Xiaomi.
The Chinese vendor shipped 6.6 million Redmi Note 8's and 6.1 million Redmi Note 8 Pro handsets.
It is also said that the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will sport 120Hz screen refresh rates.
As with all refurbished products sold directly through Apple, the devices come with the company's standard 1-year warranty.
The iPhone XR is the least expensive model available with FaceID and a modern small-bezel design. Release this year is in doubt due to coronavirus.
Samsung also placed four models in the top 10. Two more Samsung phones, the Galaxy S20 5G and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, were fourth and fifth. Instead of opting for the base variant, go for the 128GB model, as it just costs $539 and offers double the storage.
There have also been a few rumors going on saying that the iPhone 12 models that are coming this 2020 could actually include a 64 MP wide-angle camera that also comes with a telephoto lens and is built to support 3x optical zoom (upgrade from 2x), but this is still unconfirmed and now remains a rumor.
The worldwide smartphone market has evolved over the years.
