The second half of January will seemingly be the calm before the storm of February, when we expect a bunch of new flagships to arrive. So in the absence of major new announcements it’s little surprise that our trending chart has seen little change compared to last week.
We get the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE on top – the place it has occupied since its announcement. It’s joined on the rostrum by the OnePlus 10 Pro and the Xiaomi 12 Pro in that order.
The Samsung Galaxy A52s and Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max keep fourth and fifth, while the Redmi Note 11 in sixth is the first change compared to last week.
It’s followed by the first new name in the top 10 – the Realme 9 Pro Plus, which is getting significant attention even before its announcement.
Samsung Galaxy A12 is eight, while the Xiaomi 11T Pro makes a return to capture ninth. The 2021 top phone – Redmi Note 10 – only just kept its tenth position, edging out the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge and the Realme GT2 Pro, which didn’t make the cut this time.
