The research firm Strategy Analytics said the iPhone 7 was the world’s best-selling smartphone during the first quarter today.

Strategy Analytics said that Apple shipped 21.5 million iPhone 7 units and 17.4 million iPhone 7 Plus respectively during the quarter. CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone 7 plus was in such high demand that Apple had a hard time building enough units last week.

The third best selling smartphone was Chinese firm, Oppo’s R9s with an estimated 8.9 million shipments. Oppo owned 3 percent market-share worldwide in first quarter and is a popular brand in China and growing rapidly across India.

Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy J3 and J5 are completing the top five with an estimated 6.1 million and 5 million shipments respectively. Samsung said this both units helped to offset Samsung’s troubles with the Note 7 battery fiasco in the quarter.”
