The storm of announcements that was the MWC and the week preceding it really shook things up in our top 10 trending chart, but now things are starting to settle down a bit.
A bunch of high-profile names dropped out including both flexible phones as a lot of people realized that their market arrival is still way off and some mid-rangers took their place.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is our new leader, followed by Galaxy M30, which is its direct rival in India and other emerging markets, while the Galaxy S10+ flagship had to settle for third. Even the market launch didn’t help the Samsung top dog to retain its crown.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 came fourth, ahead of three more Samsung phones – Galaxy A50, Galaxy M20 and the vanilla Galaxy S10 took places fifth to seventh.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 returns to the chart to capture eight, while the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) placed just below it.
The last available spot goes to the only phone not coming from either Samsung or Xiaomi – the Oppo F11 Pro launch on Tuesday and it managed to gather just enough interest to make the top 10.
That means we say goodbye at least for the time being to vivo iQOO, Huawei Mate X, Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Sony Xperia 1. We can bet that least a few of those (and more likely all) will be back at one point or another this year, though.
