Apple made the most revenue in the market on the back of its phenomenally-high average selling price. With the release of the new iPhone X, it has now crossed $800 which is by far the highest of any company in the industry.

Compared to Apple, the average selling price of Huawei is set at $205, while that of Samsung remained higher at $254 thanks to its own expensive flagship models. However, both of them were below the global average selling price, which was around $300.

The market itself grew by 8% compared to the same time last year, ballooning to $120.2 billion from $111.8 billion in Q4 2016.
