Counterpoint reports that iPhone XR alone contributed to over one-quarter of Apple's total sales during the quarter, which made it the best-selling smartphone for the Cupertino-based tech giant across all markets.

Apple also tweaked the XR's prices in China and other regions to keep the demand strong during the quarter.

The iPhone XR was joined by the iPhone 11 announced in September this year with a market share of 1.6%.

The list of top 10 best-selling smartphones in Q3 2019 includes a total of six models from Samsung and Oppo, with the last two in the list being the Xiaomi Redmi 7A and Huawei P30.
