The Red Rice 8 was the world’s second most popular Android smartphone in the first quarter, accounting for 1.9% of total shipments, with high sales in China, India and Europe.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is third with 1.7% of the market and is the only ‘ultra-high-end’ Android model in the top six.
Juha Winter, deputy director of Strategy Analytics, added: ‘In recent years, as operator subsidies have dwindled and economic stagnation caused by the new corona virus pandemic, global consumers have become increasingly sensitive to smart machine prices.
Driven by this trend, samsung Sgalaxy A10s, Red Meter Note 8 and Samsung Galaxy A20s also made it into the 4th to 6th place on the list.
This suggests that many consumers are more willing to shop for products that are worth more, and that the Android mobile device market is entering a new post-high premium.
