The new phones of the week

Chip, 28 March 2021

As far as the smartphone world goes the past week was one of the most exciting in recent memory. We had nearly two dozens new announcements and you'd be forgiven for having missed a few. So here we are compiling a neat list and getting you up to speed.

It was a relatively slow start with the China-exclusive iQOO U3x, but then it was time for Poco to take the stage and introduce the X3 Pro and F3.

vivo and Realme gave us a couple of entry-level phones with the Y72 5G and C25 respectively, while Honor only aimed a bit higher with the V40 Lite and Tab 7.

Another round of premium offerings followed as Black Shark brought its 4 series gaming phones, while vivo made its X60 series global.

Those were followed by OnePlus, which gave us its most populous flagship line to date with the 9R, 9 and 9 Pro, alongside its first smartwatch.

Not to be left behind sister brand Realme had an event of its own, unveiling the 8 and 8 Pro as another member of the family Oppo announced the Reno5 Lite.

The Z3 became the second iQOO phone of the week, before Motorola wrapped things up with the G50 and G100 - the most ambitious G-series members in the history of the popular lineup.

few of the samsung phones are excellent like A71,M51,F62 ....Rest are overpriced trash in midrange segment. Not to mention their obsession with Exynos 9611 which was loathed by all.
