The Chinese 618 sales are very popular in the region and many brands/customers take advantage of the sales. In the past 618, Apple has quietly become the biggest winner. According to the list compiled by digital blogger DTCHAT based on relevant data, the sales of iPhone 13 hit 2.83 million units on JD.com. The sales of the iPhone 13 are far ahead of others, beating them by up to eight times. It is also interesting that all the smartphones in second to tenth place are from Xiaomi. However, if you add the sales of all the Xiaomi devices on the list, it is not up to the iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 sales beat all others
In fact, there are 20 smartphones on the list and the iPhone 13 sales are comparable to the other 19 smartphones put together. This is how popular the iPhone 13 is in China. The 2nd to 10th places are also interesting, all from Xiaomi. The highest-ranking Xiaomi smartphone is the Redmi K50, which sold 340,000 units. Even so, it is less than 1/8 of the iPhone 13. In other words, the 9 models of Xiaomi / Redmi combined can’t beat Apple’s one.
It seems that no matter how hard your Android manufacturer is in terms of parameter configuration and cost-effectiveness, the iPhone 13, which has no high refresh rate, small battery, and dual camera, only needs to drop a little price, and fans will flock to it.
This is a bit like today’s auto market. The reason why Chinese new energy sources are rushing forward is because they know that no matter how successful they are in configuration, intelligence, appearance, etc., BBA’s sharp reduction in price will still make the many users run to them.
It is rather unfortunate that Apple has the freedom to sell millions of smartphones in China. However, the likes of Huawei, ZTE and other Chinese brands do not have the same freedom in the United States.
