Though this feat could be temporary considering the fact that Apple has driven in the next phase of iPhones into the market but you never can underestimate the power of a Chinese brand. ☺

Samsung retained the first spot; while Apple took the trophy for the best selling models for the month of July.  iPhone 7 and 7 Plus captured the first two spots, Oppo's R11 and A57 came in third and fourth. Other devices that made it to the list include the Galaxy S8, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

“The growth of Chinese brands is an important trend which no player in the mobile ecosystem can ignore." While Huawei climbed to be the world’s second largest brand overall, it is surprising to see none of its models breaking into the top ten rankings. This is due to a multiple SKU portfolio that currently lacks a true hero device.
Meanwhile, Apple has rolled out its much-anticipated iPhone X on Tuesday, September 12, 2017.
