Almost impossible to know without a semi accurate ASP number. Best guess is that probably a majority are Series S but it’s hard to say beyond that

Well in japan according to Famitsu They have sold 163900 Series X|S.
88985 Series X which is about 54.29%
74915 Series S which is about 45.70%
Worldwide ratio is anybody's guess but maybe is close to Japan's ratio.
