Great success for the Samsung Galaxy A12 in 2021, according to a recent report released by Counterpoint Research. The statistic reported 10 best-selling smartphones in 2021. Apple tops the list with its iPhone 12 but, as mentioned, there is good news for the South Korean opponent as well.
Notably, the Samsung Galaxy A12 was last year’s best-selling Android smartphone. This is rather indicative, considering the fact that competitions from Xiaomi, OPPO, Realme, and others come into play in that specific market segment.
The best-selling Android smartphone of 2021 goes to Samsung Galaxy A12
So let’s take a look at the ranking, so as to have a complete overview:
The first five places were occupied by iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 11. A real triumph for Apple, which continues to be one of the main players in the mobile sector. According to Counterpoint Research, North America, Latin America, and Western Europe were the primary markets for the Samsung Galaxy A12. We are talking about a terminal that is characterized by an excellent quality-price ratio.
Its extreme “accessibility” has allowed it to become the best-selling Android smartphone in 2021 and this certainly does not come as a surprise considering a sale price perpetually below 200 dollars. However, this is not the only strong point for the device. Samsung Galaxy A12 also guarantees a long battery life and enjoys long-term software updates from the company. Furthermore, from an aesthetic point of view, it is a device that knows how to be appreciated.
Xiaomi is the only Android smartphone manufacturer present in the top 10 of 2021, conquering seventh and 10th position thanks to Redmi 9A and Redmi 9. Now that Apple has recently launched its “mid-range” iPhone SE 2022, it will be interesting to understand which ones performances will mature in the presence of Android smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy A12 (and successors).
