The iPhone 12 became the best selling smartphone as it not only saw a reduction in price but wasn’t also much different from the iPhone 13. The second device on the list was again an iPhone 12 series model — iPhone 12 Pro Max, which took a 2.2% share.

At number 3, 4, and 5 were iPhone 13, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 11. Surprisingly, iPhone 11 was still in great demand in 2021. Even in India, you can still get a brand new iPhone 11 from e-commerce platforms.

At number 6 was Samsung Galaxy A12, a budget smartphone with decent specifications. Xiaomi Redmi 9A took the seventh position, another budget 4G smartphone.

At number 8 and 9, again there were two iPhones — iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone 13 Pro Max followed by Xiaomi Redmi 9 at the tenth position.

The recently launched iPhone SE 2022 or the iPhone SE 3 is also expected to make a lot of noise in the market. The iPhone SE 3 is powered by the A15 Bionic SoC coupled with up 4GB of RAM and comes with a single 12MP camera sensor at the rear. The iPhone SE 3 starts at Rs 43,900 in India.

It is strange to see that none of the Chinese companies or Samsung smartphones could make it in the top 5 list. This is big evidence of how much people trust Apple if they are spending big money on smartphones.
