The iPhone X was the world's top-selling smartphone in the first 3 months of 2018, with 12.7 million units, while the iPhone 8 ranked second with 8.5 million units. Despite a slew of news reports suggesting that sales of the iPhone X were so disappointing that the American company will discontinue its latest flagship device this year, mostly based on flawed research by former analyst Ming Chi Kuo, consumers around the world have actually rushed to buy Apple's most expensive smartphone to date. According to the latest estimates from IHS Markit, the iPhone X was the world's most sold smartphone in the first 3 months of 2018, with 12.7 million units, while the iPhone 8 ranked second with 8.5 million units.
