Apple first surpassed Nokia and came in second place in sales of phones




Apple first surpassed by sales of Nokia and now ranks second in the world, behind only from Samsung. Reported by Hi-tech.mail citing analyst Benedict Evans. For the IV quarter of the company from Cupertino, a portfolio which phones available as a class, managed to sell nearly 70 million units (according to other sources – 73), while, as Nokia has fallen to the level of 50 million.


On the one hand, this tendency was quite a while ago, so awesome that outcome can not be called. In addition, the successful sales of the iPhone and the iPhone 6 6 Plus helped “apple” of the corporation to sell significantly more devices. In particular, good sales of flagship devices stimulate sales and last year’s models, including among Russians.

Given the hard times for Samsung, which remains the leader, Apple could overtake it soon. Although she did not give a long rest on his laurels. Threat, first of all, are Chinese companies, and the same Xiaomi has already made a strong statement about plans to go on the top line of the rating for 5-10 years.


The very same Chinese market, which is one of the largest in the world, is also positively accepted the new iPhone. Active growth in emerging markets may also have a positive impact on sales. Apple will introduce its financial report very soon, so we certainly know more details about the success in China, where buyers have bought more than 20 million units just in the first days of sales.
